However, according to a recent census, one third of the total population live in the 1,476 slums in and around Hyderabad. One of Hyderabad’s most populous slums is called Indiramma Nagar (pictured left) with 620,000 individuals. For young boys and girls the opportunity to go to school can change their lives forever.

Project 15 Insight: 5/7/19
Census of India 2011 showed that an estimated 32 million children in India aged between 6-13 years have never attended any educational institution. United Nations Development Programme stated in 2015 that India has made significant progress in generalizing primary education. However, a large percentage of children living in rural areas and from marginalized communities are still out of school. In many cases, children cannot attend the public education system due to the cost of materials required. The lack of paper and pen can mean that a child does not obtain the education necessary to break a cycle of poverty. Donate $10 now to provide a book bag full of supplies necessary for school! #GiveYourMite
