The following non-profits have been carefully curated by Global Citizen India to create meaningful impact towards Sustainable Development Goals: quality education, gender equality and water, sanitation & hygiene (WASH).
All funds raised through this activity will directly go to these non-profits.
Miracle Foundation brings life-changing care to India’s orphans. We focus on strengthening existing institutions and giving purposeful employment to local people in need of work. Together with our supporters, we transform institutional orphanages into homes, train displaced women to become cherished mothers, and fund scholarships for education.
Honed over 16 years, our proprietary model is a proven method that raises the standards of orphanages. We drive change by providing incremental funding, training, and capacity building to close gaps in the quality of care. We have codified measurement standards based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and actively work with dozens of orphanages across India. Our model helps give children all they need to thrive and become educated, self-sustaining members of society. And, because it has measurable, has codified standards, focuses on training curriculum for caregivers, and is based on the United Nations Rights of the Child, it is fully replicable in any orphanage in the world. In August of 2016, we partnered with the Government of Maharashtra to bring our methodology into 100 homes in that state.
Partnering with the Global Citizen Festival in India will mean that many more thousands of children will realize their right to education and grow up to be Global Citizens themselves one day.
Violence against women and girls is a bitter reality in India. As many as one-third of women and girls in the age group 15-49 have experienced physical violence, about 1 in 10 have experienced some form of sexual violence [Source: National Family Health Survey Round III (2005-2006)].
Yet, violence against women and girls, particularly domestic violence, is avoidable. Many of us think and justify that violence within intimate partners is normal, and therefore acceptable. We need to change this very thinking that normalises violence against women and girls. We all have a role in preventing such violence.
Oxfam India is a movement of people to end the injustice caused by extreme inequality and poverty and ensure that no one gets left behind. Our programmes are currently active in the six focus states of Assam, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha and Uttar Pradesh.
Since 2009, Oxfam India has been working to reduce the acceptance of violence against women and girls. We have reached out to more than 42,000 women to end violence in their lives. We have established 23 support centres within formal and informal locations to provide psycho-social counselling and legal aid to women facing this issue in their lives.
Together, we need to make sure that perceptions, attitudes and behaviours towards women and girls change so that gender-based discrimination comes to an end.
WaterAid has been working in India for the past three decades and has played a significant role in the WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) sector nationally and in the states. We work to transform the lives of the poorest and most marginalised people by improving their access to WASH services. In India currently, we directly intervene in 43 districts, and 14 towns/cities across 11 states. In the year 2015-16, we reached 7,03,925 people with water, 11,23,180 people with sanitation and 18,87,253 people with hygiene.
The numbers are stark. 2 out of 3 people who defecate in open in the world are from India. Over 56 crore (560 million) people in India do not have a safe and private toilet. India also has the highest number of people in the world without access to safe water.
This is a deadly crisis. When people don’t have safe water and adequate sanitation, disease spreads fast. On an average, 16 children under five die every hour due to diarrhoea linked to poor water and sanitation! Another serious threat is contamination of our river bodies. A WaterAid India study found that an alarming 70% of India’s surface water is polluted, mainly due to raw sewage flowing untreated into our rivers and water bodies. A holistic approach to water, sanitation and hygiene is therefore critical to keeping ourselves healthy and our rivers clean.
