Hunger

The main influence of the hunger crisis in this region is the overwhelming overpopulation of the country, as at July 2007, India’s population is estimated to be 1 129 866 154 people, with 63% of these aged between 15 – 64 years. Only 2.8% of their total land mass is being used for agricultural purposes. (1)

Poverty

In the last decade India has been able to decrease their poverty rates by 10% however this amount barely scraps the surface of the problem with 25% of the population (or 282 466 538 total people) in  India still suffering extensive poverty, with the percentage of people living with less than US$2 a day at 79.9 %, that is close to one billion people who exist on $2 for the day, that’s one loaf of bread perhaps, one litre of milk, a handful of grain but not all of the above together, no butter for your bread, no coffee for your milk, The huge and ever-growing population is the fundamental social, economic and environmental problem that they face. (1) While the population faces insurmountable odds just to survive, with 8 812 920 people unemployed these odds diminish significantly. Education is virtually inaccessible to the poor of this region. India currently has 600 000 Internally Displaced Persons in their country. (1)

Homeless Be A HERO

Poverty leads to orphans and homelessness.

  • 150 million children live on the street.
  • Action International says that by 2020 there will be 800 million homeless children.
  • The UN says that the street children situation is one of the worst crises facing the nations of the world.
  • This is a disaster

“Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.” – Universal Declaration of Human Rights, article 25, par. 1

The Heroes of the Nation School, has been operational since 2002 and currently has 534 students in primary and high school. This element of the project is very important to the development of the community for the following reasons:

The children of the community attend HOTN for schooling for the following reasons:
i)    the standard of education is very high;
ii)   there is a boarding school available because it is too far to travel daily;
iii)  it is the only boarding school in a 10 km radius;
iv)  the children are fed a nutritious diet enabling them to concentrate;
v)   the location of the school is a long way from bad influences eg. drugs/alcohol, etcetera;
vi)  the school is needed because nearest town is 7 km away.

City: Bethany, Swaziland
Project: New Hope Children's Home
Partner:  Hope for the Nations
Number of Children: 14

The New Hope Centre project is an ambitious and bold intervention to address the nation of Swaziland's devastation. The vision goes well beyond reaching the destitute children in order to clothe and feed them; it encompasses rescuing the nation through the development of future leaders...these same children being clothed, fed, and educated. "Project New Hope" has been formalized and implemented to reflect this overall objective. The vision is to expand the current New Hope Centre facilities by scoping and establishing seven other centers throughout Swaziland. The target would be to house approximately 100-120 children at each centre. The vision sees upwards of 1000 children being clothed, fed, taught, and nurtured along the road to becoming leaders within Swaziland

Jireh Children's Home is a Christian home for children who have no home of their own: orphans; runaways; street children; victims of neglect, poverty, and exploitation - children who have nowhere else to go and no hope for a better life. Half the property comprises cottages and facilities for modern living. The other half is open land, set aside for agriculture and livestock. Jireh Children's Home grows much of its own food. It is a place where children grow up in a Christian atmosphere wherein personal and group devotions as well as ongoing Bible Studies are an integral part of the daily routine.
