India loses 14 lakh children, in other words one child every 20 seconds, highest anywhere in the world. More than three lakh babies die each year on the first day they enter the world. These are not random deaths beyond our control. Half of India’s women give birth without skilled birth attendant which puts both mother and child at risk.
Save the Children India and Youth Ki Awaaz are running the #Vote4Children campaign to make sure that political parties take the future of our children seriously. We want to ensure that the decision makers, for the next 5 years, are committed to change the deplorable conditions of India’s children.
Joining us are prominent, socially active and conscious celebrities, Nandita Das, Shabana Azmi, Kunal Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra. Join them by signing the pledge at the end of this post.
