Persistent inequality in India is reflected in the low human development attainments of the country’s most marginalized groups including castes, women, the transgender community, people living with HIV, migrants, and tribal and rural populations. More than 800 million of India’s 1.25 billion people live in the countryside, and a quarter of this rural population lives below the poverty line, totaling 216 million individuals. The government estimates average monthly incomes per agricultural household across the whole of India at only US $105.
Families in Dharamsala face the reality of a rural economy and the pressures that come with it. Very often education is not viewed as a way out of poverty, and children are instead encouraged to contribute to the cultivation of the family land and animals. Additionally, access to health care in rural settings can be extremely limited and under resourced.
Join CCS to volunteer in Dharamsala as we support the education of vulnerable children and girls, and deliver public health campaigns to those that lack adequate health care.
