49.1% of children suffer from severe psychological abuse. (See research sources in the appendix)
AIDS, the fastest spreading disease in India, effects children.
Teach individuals who are parents, expecting parents, teachers and/or child caregivers, additional childcare skills through a course called Responsible Childcare.
Create family home environments as close to normal as possible for orphaned, neglected and abused children so they are nurtured and empowered to grow into self-sustaining adults.
Have services available to deal with the trauma that has affected the children.
It is believed that the programs proposed by Love Humanity will, over time, have a gradual, sustained impact on the greater society. Our intent is to play an integral role in helping to:
Increase prosperity. Children who are educated have a much better chance of obtaining gainful employment, thus not having to resort to begging, crime or prostitution to survive. Love Humanity children will be empowered to grow into self-sustaining adults who might one day change the future of India and possibly the world. This, in of itself, creates brighter futures and reduces poverty.
Increase literacy. Children living on the street tend not to go to school. Education is very important and all children under the Love Humanity program will be offered the best possible education according to their aptitude. They will be literate.
Reduce crime in India. Children who are homeless sometimes resort to petty crime to survive. When raised in loving home environments they are empowered to face life in a more positive manner. This has been shown to reduce future criminal behavior.
Reduce the spread of sexually transmitted disease. One of the causes of the spread of sexually transmitted diseases is that homeless children are often exploited and become tools for sexual abuse and prostitution. When a child grows up in a family-like situation, there is much less chance they will have to resort to sex at such a young age or be exploited or exposed to such abusive treatment, thus the spread of sexual diseases will be reduced.
Improve parenting skills. By teaching parents how to be parents not only will Love Humanity touch the lives of orphans, but will reach out to the community. Parents and expected parents will have a place to learn how to be parents. They will learn how to discipline the children in love – thus reducing child abuse cases.
