Many children in poor communities in rural Andhra Pradesh are missing the opportunities to dream of a bright future. With the prevailing poverty, illiteracy and lack of infrastructure, children in rural areas are being let down in terms of care and education. Lack of sufficient and regular income forces parents to send their children to work in slate quarries, handloom and lime industry, where they are exposed to dangerous conditions and malnutrition.
ASSIST works hard to end this chain of suffering that has gone on for generations by strengthening child support systems in a comprehensive manner. Sustainable child development is only possible when we help entire communities to develop.
