What is this about ?
The NewBeginnings Charitable Trust is raising money for 47 children who belong to the poor and marginalised families of the Kurnool district in Andhra Pradesh, India. Each child just needs $85 to complete one year of education. However small the donation can be, every penny donated is a ray of hope for these children. This generous donation is adequate enough to provide the child with two sets of uniform, a pair of shoes, tuition fee, textbooks, notebooks and stationery.
The Background and Cause:
During the period between 2001 – 2018, the district of Kurnool in Andhra Pradesh, India has suffered years of massive drought, including seven continous years of severe drought. This resulted in the mass migration of poor communities from their villages to the cities in search of employment. This district suffers heavy child labors, child marriages and stands second in human trafficking in the entire state. When survival itself becomes a big burden to families, education of children becomes a non-priority for the hunger-stricken families. We believe it is the responsibility of each citizen in this world to make sure the children are provided with proper education.
Who are we and what do we stand for ?
The NewBeginnings Charitable Trust is a registered and tax exempted non-profit organisation working with the vulnerable and marginalised rural and indigenous communities in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana in India. With a mission to eradicate chronic poverty and hunger, which we consider as a source of several social evils in the society, we aim for integrated development of each community with a special focus on children and women.
This organisation strongly believes that the education of children and the economic empowerment of women are two of the most certain ways to eradicate poverty and empower the marginalised communities. Therefore, we emphasize “education with economic empowerment," which ensures the communities become self-reliant within a short period.
Education breaks social bondages especially women who can voice their rights and stand against gender-based violence. While NewBeginnings provides education to children, we simultaneously train adolescents and women in the same villages in acquiring employable skills including modern agriculture practices and link them with marketable sources. Within a short period of time, these skilled communities will be able to take care of their children’s education and their families.
