Children are the future.

Updated: May 26, 2021

We all have grown up listening to the quote -"Children are the pillars of the nation", at least once. And as children, we may have never understood the meaning of it, completely. We understand this much better as we grow older and process our journey with the information we have access to. We then believe that the formative years of our development contribute to much of what we do in our adult life, in all aspects - mentally, socially, financially, and physically. Then we tell young ones in our influence - "You are the future generation" or "You are the pillar of this nation".

You are the future.

What a powerful statement. As true as it is powerful, at Ariel Child Welfare Trust, we believe

that every child has the potential to be uniquely amazing with the right resources at their disposal at their crucial stages of development. And predominantly these standards or even basic resources are far beyond the reach of underprivileged or rural communities.

Just imagine 3 children Akash, Anil, and Atul trying to learn to ride a bicycle. The standard resource needed is a bicycle. Akash has one at home, Anil has to borrow it for an hour from a friend once a week and Atul has to walk 20kms to rent one. Who, according to you, had the best chance to learn? You guessed it right!

India is a growing economy with so many opportunities. Many underprivileged/poor/rural communities don't grow much, only because they were like Anil or Atul. Their basic resource was either beyond reach or missing. In our experience of being in this space for over 2 years, we have identified a few communities that have less access or no access to good infrastructure and we wanted to change that because children are the future, aren't they? And it's our responsibility that all children deserve an equal chance to a good life.

Here are a few quotes by some famous people about Children :

Children are likely to live up to what you believe of them.”

Lady Bird Johnson, Former First Lady of the United States

Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.

Margaret Mead, cultural anthropologist

Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see.

John F. Kennedy, President of the United States

Children are the future.
