India’s population of 1.3 billion closely rivals China, and is the second most populated country in the world. However, India’s geographical size is only 1/3 the size of the USA; as a result, most of India is densely populated.
With such a large population, India is rich in culture and diversity. Over 1,600 tribal languages are spoken across the country. While farming is one of the largest industries, India is also known for its contributions to computer science, medicine, music, and film.
REACHING THE LOST
For all is beauty and diversity, India struggles with giving care to the vast amount of people that fill the country. There are nearly 26 million orphans in India, due to abandonment, poverty, and disease.
Due to the cast system commonly used in India, children without parents are deemed to have to no value. Kidstown is passionate about reaching out to these children who are rejected, instilling stability, love, and opportunity back into their lives.
