Even with the best efforts of some governments, millions of people live in slums. In 1990 in India, Manav Sadhna started a project to teach hygiene and values to underprivileged children. The schools have become a central point for providing services for women and children. The work has culminated in taking over 60 "anganwadis," which are government-run preschools run out of peoples' homes. The project has provided essential health services and nutrition for young children.

    It is heart warming to watch dedicated persons providing values -based education and basic health services to underprivileged children and adults.There is hope when people serve with love. I lived in Sabarmati 80 years ago. Sadly conditons seem to have worsended with increasing population of poor people. Such selfless service projects enkindle hope in darkness.It inspiring to see people doing such commendable service. I bow to the spirit of service and dedication. Jagdish P Dave

  • Find and join a children's play group.  It takes a village to raise a child. Working together with fellow parents will help lower your stress and improve your child's socialization.

  • Volunteer at a local food pantry.  Either help collect food from your community, or help distribute it.  For children under age 6, food is just as important for growing up healthy as medicine and social activities.
