Unable to afford childcare, they search for work carrying children on their backs or by their sides. This makes it even more difficult to find work, which is why they often resort to begging on the streets or doing whatever necessary to survive. These circumstances place innocent little children in danger and often lead to their unfortunate demise.
Now that the children receive breakfast, lunch and a snack they attend school every single day and they are educated and nurtured in a loving environment.
As a result, their mothers are usually beggars on the streets (many of whom are homeless) or work as a daily laborer earning less than .50 cents per day.
IGO's education and nutritional program provides desperate preschool aged children 2 meals per day in a safe and nurturing environment. Although still living in extreme poverty, preschoolers are healthy, happy and full of energy. This basic provision of food and safety for the children has a ripple effect, benefiting their family and community as well.
