CHILDREN OF INDIA
MATTHEW 10 MINISTRIES
Often sold into sexual slavery or simply abandoned, the children of India are forced to grow up in some of the most devastating circumstances imaginable. The youth of India make up 50% of the population and those under the age of 35 make up 65% of the entire population of this nation.
Girls are often killed at birth or aborted as they are seen as a liability to families because of the dowry required for marriages. Over 500,000 girls will be aborted this year due to a preference for male children.
India is seen as the 4th most dangerous country for women. Nearly half the girls are married off before the age of 18 and domestic violence is common.
Your gift will help bring hope to children and young people who are living in the slums. With over 40 homes that rescue alleviate childhood poverty, it is through the generous gifts of donors that they are able to rescue and educate children from the brink of death or sexual slavery.
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Don't wait for someone else to do this for you. Get involved by donating, joining a team, volunteering, or any number of other opportunities that are available to you through Matthew 10. You're never too young or too old to make a difference in a child's life!
Our mission is to care for the orphaned and helpless by providing for their physical needs as well as their educational needs so that they can grow in spirit and knowledge and make a difference in their communities when they become adults.
