Once a child labour, Santosh, who is currently running his own NGO in Hyderabad, provides free primary education to the tribal children. People Helping Children was set up in 2019 and aims towards providing solution to the problems faced by the underprivileged children. Education and nutritious food are the two top priorities of the NGO. With branches in 6 states, NGO runs with the support of around 50 members and over 1000 volunteers. Founder of People Helping Children, Santosh said, "I lost my childhood, I worked as a child labourer, so I don't want anyone to lose their childhood, this is the main reason, why I started this NGO." The goal of this NGO is that every child gets primary education in the country.
Amid rising cases of suicide in the last few weeks, an NGO has taken the initiative of organising counseling sessions for protesting farmers at Singhu border (Delhi-Haryana Border). US-based NGO, United Sikhs has started counselling the farmers, who are falling prey to anxiety and depression.
As farmers' prolonged protest against the Centre's three agricultural laws continues, an NGO has come forward to set up a temporary mini-hospital at the Singhu border (Delhi-Haryana), one of the protesting sites, for their convenience. NGO's Avatar Singh said, "Ambulance used to be brought here frequently and patients had to be taken to Sonipat even for small emergencies. So, we opened a hospital here." As all nine meetings between the farmer unions and the government failed to remove the ongoing deadlock, the protest entered 45th day on January 09. Next meeting is scheduled for January 15.
