For millions of children all over the world poverty, hunger and disease are everyday realities. These children are exposed to intense and multiple risks to physical and mental health, together with an inability to withstand such risks.
They are suffering from many and multifarious crises. The crisis of development, healthy living, nourishment and health care.These children are deprived of education, healthy recreation or any kind of social participation. They are growing up without proper shelter from heat, cold and rain and clothes for protection. They are not even fully aware of their basic needs and rights.
The Sponsorship programme was started in 2001 because of tremendous zeal and enthusiasm shown by a few visiting students of Social Work from the Diakonia Institute of Finland. Students who do their practical work at IPER interact with children, develop a close relationship with them. It was basically under the leadership of two students who did the initial framework and the IPER Sponsorship Programme took a wider shape in their hand. Now fifteen years old the programme has more than 100 children sponsored both by sponsors from India and abroad.
