68.8% of the Indian population lives on less than $2 a day. Over 30% have less than $1.25 available.
In such a largely poverty-striken country, child marriage and malnutrition is a harsh reality and despite overall economic growth, the quality of life of its people has not improved. At 316 Grace, our mission is driven by a purpose to heal, a purpose to offer hope, and a purpose for a future. With your help and support, we strive to make a meaningful impact to the most vulnerable and underserved populations. Pray and partner with us today!
India has the largest adolescent population in the world at 253 million, and every fifth person is between 10 and 19 years old.
India stands to benefit socially, politically and economically if this large number of adolescents are safe, healthy, educated and equipped with information and life skills to support the country’s continued development.
