In my work with the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program in Milwaukee, I routinely see youngsters who suffer from lives of poverty and want. But the struggle that they endure, while still in the loving arms of their mothers, who generally try to do all that they can to provide for their children, are nothing compared to the plight of children in Guwahati in the region of Northeast India, who are often left on their own to fend for themselves, without the support of a family that cares for them.
Over the course of the last year, I've had the pleasure of corresponding with Prasad Kalaparthy, a young seminarian from India. Prasad, a former social work student who is now a Salesian Brother of Don Bosco in Guwahati in the Northeast Region of India, works diligently to help young children whose lives on the street are in utter chaos. Prasad is deeply passionate about this project for the poor and marginalized children who are served under the Child Friendly Guwahati campaign, and states that they are aiming to put 10,000 children back into schools over the next three years. Much support is needed in this endeavor.
