Child beggary is one of the most heartbreaking and pertinent problems prevalent in our country. National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) reports about 300,000 children are forced to beg on the streets, railway stations and in many other lousy places. Most children are forced into beggary due to poverty and lack of education among parents. Due to threats to life, beating and violence the children don't have a way out. They are just stuck and they accept their fate as beggary as their way for survival.
MOM Foundation has been helping children by providing them with accommodation, food, education and clothes. They provide children with a place of safety and refuge with opportunities such as education and health with a view to help them grow in a healthier environment, which can help them achieve greater heights in life.
Just INR 2000 will help one child for a month.
Below are two videos that I made. The first one is a short awareness video and the second one is an interview I had with two Child Beggars who were rescued by MOM Foundation
My name is Jason Theodore doing my final high school year at Kodaikanal International School.
I am doing this campaign to help child beggars, for they didn't choose, but are often forced into beggary. These helpless children are abused physically and emotionally as they could not resist their selfish and short-sighted parents or so-called caretakers who force them into begging.
I believe that every child should have access to education and lead a happy life in a healthy environment. The fact that just INR 2000 will help one child for a month made me realise that I should do something about it.
Please support this campaign and let's help many children lead a good life.

Funding for this campaign does not have tax benefits. Foreign funding is accepted.
Will we get to know the details of how the money was spent?
Yes. After the money has been collected it will be transferred by Fueladream to the M.O.M. FOUNDATION. It will take from 2 to 3 months after that to get details of fund use. Once we get this information from them, we shall upload this to the UPDATES section of this campaign. You will then get an alert & can read details about the impact we have made and how the money has been spent.
How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
