Childhood education in the United States is mandatory, generally enforced and toleration-by-necessity is the attitude among most young kids who are asked to attend on a daily basis, Monday through Friday. Their counterparts in India, however, know that a child attending school means, quite simply, their life will be better because of it.
And a school uniform in India is the outer expression of this reality of education.
American children, when given the choice, would rather not have their attire mandated by their school. In India a school uniform means:
- You have the money to afford it (i.e., you are not desperate).
- Your future has possibility.
- Your family loves you.
- Your life may have a purpose.
- You have dignity and a place in society.
All this from a simple school uniform? Yes, because in India education is a privilege with immediate and future benefits clear for all to see.
Join us in helping give hundreds of orphaned or abandoned children dignity and a place in society by sponsoring a school uniform for one child ($50) or a whole home of children ($250).
