No भीख, Only सीख.
Don’t encourage beggary. Encourage education.
Begging is one of the most serious social issues in India. It’s a well-organized mafia nexus that uses little children and their innocence as a tool to run its business. Lakhs of children are kidnapped, drugged, beaten and forced to do beggary. Child beggary is no more a small issue, it is a societal concern now, as millions of children have been forced into this highly worrisome menace. Every day, we see several children begging on the roads and we just turn our backs to them. Is this how we are trying to eradicate this problem from our country?
We should all be ashamed at the thought of the number of children being trafficked and abused, for just the purpose of making some money. India consists of the world’s largest number of child beggars, a number that has been increasing at a rapid speed.
Most of us give these children some money and then move on to our tasks. We forget that when we gave them money, the children don’t get it. It goes into pockets of Mafias who are running this nexus of beggary. In a way, we are helping these mafias and criminals.
Recently Haridwar Police and Mumbai Police launched several campaigns to eradicate child beggary from their states but nothing like this was done by Delhi Police.
Seeing this India For Children launched an awareness campaign “No Bheekh, Only Seekh”. In this campaign, we have decided to aware people of how they are encouraging mafias and criminals by giving money to children. We want them to encourage in giving the same money to some NGO or charitable trust which is working in the sector of education and rehabilitation for underprivileged and slum children.
We will do this campaign across Delhi and NCR regions for the next five days.
We want you to publish our campaign in your reputated news house and inspire our volunteers and people so that they stop giving their hard-earned to some mafia and rather give it to people who are working for the cause of creating a better future for children.
