Take Action: Join the #carecollective

It is estimated that there are 35 million children in India who are in need of care and protection.

It IS a large number. But, at Make A Difference, we believe that the way to solve this problem is to build a community around these children. A community of those who care and want to contribute in whichever way then can to help build long-term solutions to this problem.

Imagine what a collective of 1 million doers and believers will be able to do. We can. And we can't wait to get started!
