As responsible corporate citizens, we at ERP Analysts always wanted to do something that would provide a better world for our future generations, so we decided to educate and support the aspirations of under-privileged children across the world.
All children are special and they deserve to achieve their growth and dreams in a healthy surrounding and they should not be devoid of their primary rights. It is the birthright of each and every child to enjoy that right.
When hunger, clothing and shelter are issues that need immediate attention for survival, education is the least priority for such children. They cannot even nurture a dream which is supported by academic excellence. They struggle for survival and their dreams and desires are buried deep in the layers of the daily needs of life. It is said that only those people who dream can make it a reality. Hence, the Sponsor Kids idea sprouted where such children’s dreams and aspirations can be nurtured so that they would go back to their family as well as community and help others to create a better world for our future generations.
We are more focused and get lost in this busy schedule making our lives more secured and comfortable. At one point in time we feel we have done enough for our family and ourselves and a question arises asking us what we have contributed towards the welfare of the society we live in.
We might come across a lot of problems the world is facing now. Child labor has emerged as an increasingly important issue, reflecting heightened sensitivity to problems at all levels, Child workers are engaged primarily in agriculture and other activities in rural areas and in industries and some other informal activities in urban areas. The most exploitative form of child labor includes child prostitution and forced bonded labor, which is found in many parts of the world.
Children today often labor under extremely hazardous conditions, handling poisonous chemicals, inhaling noxious fumes, and hauling excessive weights. They are usually overworked, underfed and underpaid - if they are paid at all. They toil so that their families can survive.
According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty. And they “die quietly in some of the poorest villages on earth, far removed from the scrutiny and the conscience of the world. Being meek and weak in life makes these dying multitudes even more invisible in death.”
Since “Children are the most valuable resource and the best hope for the future of the world" It is the duty of all citizens to work hand in hand to sort out this problem.
