The Incentive for Creating EMPOWER THE CHILDREN
Constant noise and crowded living conditions throughout Kolkata’s slums make it very difficult for children to thrive. Homes in these slums consist of one small room that shelters an entire family with many children. These rooms are furnished with only a single platform bed, made of plywood. The whole family sleeps on this one bed. Homes lack running water, toilets or any of the basics that make life in the 21st century comfortable. Given these circumstances, slum-dwelling parents manage as best they can. However, their children require additional support and resources from charitable organizations such as Empower the Children.
