to our hunger statistics every year. This implies that in India 6000 children dies every
single day because of starvation1. The situation persists for decades because, for
generations they continue to be clad with poverty unable to break the vicious cycle.
To secure a single meal for a day, children take up menial jobs in hazardous work
environment which makes them vulnerable to dreadful diseases.
  Today 13.5 million children are out of school because they have to arrange for their
food for survival. For them going to school is not the priority but earning their meal is.

work.
