"For the sustainable wholistic development of the marginalized children by
providing a healthy environment to grow and
to become responsible citizens of India"
Why Kids for Kids?
Almost 1.3 crore children are victims of child labour.
Almost 7000 children succumb to their fate, everyday, due to malnutrition and starvation.
Almost 1.8 crore children are slum-dwellers.
Almost 5.9 crore children (between the age of 6-14) can't afford formal education.
Children are the most vulnerable victims of poverty. Acute poverty, migration, illiteracy, ignorance of parents etc. lead children to ill health, abuse and exploitation which ultimately block the survival of the children. Majority of the children in our operational areas spend their time in cattle rearing, taking care of siblings etc. eventually, ends up in childlabour, child marriage, sexual abuse, drug addiction etc.
We believe that it is our responsibility to ensure protection and holistic development of each and every child. They are the hope & future of our nation. Molding and nurturing from the bud stage will facilitate the fullest development and protection of the child. Kids for Kids tru its various projects like 'Let Them Smile' provides opportunities for the child's fullest growth & protection through education, health services, social security and other supporting services. At present ESAF ‘Kids for Kids’ operates 10 'Let Them Smile' Child Care Centres (Susnia, Bosko, Begini, Bania, Kaldhiha, Damkitola, Hisapeda, Baramassiah, Dumiria, Jeska) and looks after 650 children. Facilities we provide include, Food, Uniforms, Books, Medical Check-ups, Child Development Programmes, etc.
