FACTS AND FIGURES ON THE DAILY STRUGGLE FOR SURVIVAL
Two-thirds of people in India live in Poverty: 68.8% of the Indian Population lives on less than $2 a day. Over 30% even have less than $1.25 per day available-they are considered extremely poor. This makes the Indian Subcontinent one of the poorest countries in the world: women and children, the weakest members of Indian society, suffer most.
Hunger and malnutrition create a self-sustaining barrier that keeps people stuck in poverty. Hunger makes it more difficult for a person to learn, work, pursue opportunities and contribute to society. It drains a person’s energy, destroys mental acuity, and exacts a heavy price on health throughout his or her life.
