India is a country with some of the richest people in the world. Several wealthy business houses are based out of India, and four of the ten wealthiest people in the world are from India. Unfortunately the system is often unbalanced. Despite the success of a minority of people who are from, or live in, the country, millions of Indian children are starving, homeless, and/or making a meager living working as labourers. It is to address this issue that several development organizations across the country are now working on issues of child labour, child rights, education for children etc. In the last few years several corporate foundations have also joined the sector, bringing with them their corporate and management expertise to help address the issues of social development in the country.


Corporate foundations in India today are working on diverse social development issues, one of them being education for underprivileged children in rural pockets of the country. These programs are conducted in rural areas for underprivileged children, mainly focused on girls. Programs are designed specifically to fill educational "gaps" in communities, found through surveys.


Many organizations offer several other associated programs linked directly or indirectly to education. Aside from health care, child rights and relief and community development programs, many foundations work toward educating children specifically in "marginalized communities in rural India." They are supported by resources and skills donated by people around the world.


Most of these corporate foundations are non-profit organizations and are supported by donations. All this money is then channelized towards providing quality education for children in rural India.


Though the wealth in India is currently spread unevenly, corporate foundations are working diligently toward making the future much brighter for the millions of children who would otherwise never even have a chance. Quality education is the key in building a successful life for children without financial opportunity.
