“If sometimes our poor people have had to die of starvation, it is not because God didn’t care for them, but because you and I didn’t give, were not instruments of love in the hands of God, to give them that bread, to give them that clothing, because we did not recognise him, when once more Christ came in distressing disguise - in the hungry man, in the lonely man, in the homeless child, and seeking for shelter.” -- Mother Teresa
Data from Global Nutrition report 2020 shows a positive correlation between mother's education and various indicators of child’s nutrition like breastfeeding and diet diversity. Hence, the long term sustainable solution to achieving Zero Hunger is in the heart of women empowerment. Only then can the vicious cycle of hunger-poverty be turned into a virtuous cycle of healthy mother, healthy child and healthy family.
Each of us, therefore, are guilty of our negligence and callousness in dealing with our mothers and their children in our land. Shouldn’t our heads be hung in shame. Yes, it must.
The big question then is, what can be done? Who can bring in the desired change?
Who will care?
This concern has compelled REST (Rahat Educational and Sustainable Team) to come forward and care for the uncared children in India who are living in the villages and
slums of urban India. This can be done through the sponsorship of children.
Why sponsor a child?
Sponsoring a child creates a timeless impact on a child’s life. It is one of the most effective ways to put up a fight against the social evils of poverty and illiteracy. It gives you an opportunity to develop a long-term personal relationship with your sponsored child by supporting him/her entirely during his/her years of education - until he/she leaves high school, graduates, or becomes self-reliant.
In this process, you become a positive role model for him/her. Not only that but the education that the child receives will help him/her break free from poverty and become a dignified individual, and a socially responsible citizen of India.
Communication about the child once a year: A term letter along with a holiday greeting card and a photograph of the child (at the end of the calendar year) and the Annual Progress Report to show you his/her progress at the end of the academic year will be given to you. You can keep in touch consistently with your child through letters and personal visits that will be coordinated by our Sponsor Relations Department.
