Poverty and lack of access to quality education are main reasons that deprive children in North East India of their right to education, development and a happy childhood. It is this lack of education and consequent employability that leads many youngsters to join armed groups or fall prey to drugs and crime. Sunbird attempts to tackle the root causes ensuring they are able to attend school. Join us in reaching out to these marginalized and underprivileged children in a neglected part of India. Every contribution counts!
