Our children salute the Indian flag on independence day.
Providing Schools for Indian Slum Children
Opportunity Foundation India works in the slums at the north edge of Hyderabad city to provide education, nutrition and medical care for the children living there. We care for children of all ages in our baby care center, nursery school, kindergarten and elementary school up to grade five. After that, those students who qualify receive scholarships to the best Catholic private school in the area. In 2009 100% of our fifth graders qualified.
The Indian upper and middle classes are starting to enter the modern world but they are few relative to the vast number of poor in the villages and slums. This majority of the Indian people must wait one or two generations before they can be a part of the new world.
Our children will not be waiting.
