HRO will take legal action against those who impersonate, misuse our identity & name

WHAT WE DO

Presently our focus areas are children and women’s rights.  We started with children’s rights because we believe that the child rights approach is the only way to bring about a sustainable change. Give a child education and you make him aware, make a child aware and you teach him how to stand up for his rights, you teach him how to stand up for his rights and you give him the strength to fight for them. .

  • Can you imagine that 42% of the world’s hungry children are Indian?
  • 10,000 children die in India for causes that can be avoided, not in any famine, flood or tsunami.
  • More than half of the children in India are denied their fundamental right to education either because of lack of health care, child labour or something even as ridiculous as lack of toilets in their schools.

That’s where HRO comes in.

HRO is a grass roots organization that does work like building infrastructure for schools, providing children with the proper health care and rescuing them from bonded labour. You will be surprised how many of them “want” to go to school but cannot because they “born” into bonded labour. In our quest to protect their rights, we rehabilitate them, put them back where they belong – in schools, and sensitize them about their rights.

Our mission is to see a literate India.

Vasuki Sunkavalli  (Lawyer) – “Women are the foundation of every society and nothing can be built without a strong foundation.”

A country, say India for example, whose population of women is more than the entire population in many other countries, we lack far behind where their treatment is concerned.

A glace at a few of the statistics:

  • The United Nations Children’s Fund, estimated that upto 50 million girls and women are ‘missing’ from India’s population because of termination of the female foetus or high mortality of the girl child due to lack of proper care.
  • In no Indian State do women and men earn equal wages in agriculture.
  • Close to 245 million Indian women lack the basic capability to read and write
  • 38% of all HIV positive people in India are women, yet only 25% of beds in AIDS care centers in India are occupied by them.
  • 92% of women in India suffer from gynecological problems.

The above is, as mentioned earlier just a glance. The statistics are appalling and needles to mention here are the inexcusable figures of crimes committed against women.

Our aim is women empowerment thorough awareness and financial independence. We implement and conduct activities for sustainable livelihoods through vocational skill development trainings for destitute women. We provide free legal aid services for women in cases of dowry harassment, domestic violence, crimes against women, etc. Are you aware that in many villages and towns girls do not go to school due to lack of sanitary care? HRO works to bridge these deficiencies. We provide for medical care and all other requirements, which would ensure the education of the girl child and help her grow to her full potential.

As we grow and our outreach increases we plan on diversifying our efforts and work in other areas of human rights as well and represent other downtrodden sections of the society.

Whatever we do we cannot do without YOU. Help us grow; help us help others, because tomorrow should not be like yesterday.
