With acceleration in economic growth, India has become one of the fastest growing developing countries. However, poverty across the nation is still a true, visible and deeply-ceded part of life.
Poverty is the major cause for children ending up on the streets. In order to survive, a child living in poverty will be forced to sacrifice education and training; without even basic skills such as reading or writing the child will, as an adult, be unable to move up the social ladder, find work for themselves and care and protect their own family - thus falling prey to the vicious poverty cycle.
