Children in Poverty:
According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty, they “die quietly in some of the poorest villages on earth, far removed, from the scrutiny and the conscience of the world. Being meek and weak in life makes these dying multitudes even more invisible in death.”
Feeding the hungry at home and abroad, we provide food, clothing and basic necessities to aid children in impoverished countries and in America`s inner-cities.
The problem of child abuse is a very serious problem that is growing in epidemic proportions. Throughout the summer and fall of 2010, newspapers and news broadcasts have been filled with tragic stories of child abuse, molestation, kidnappings, beatings, severe neglect and death. Almost one-in-ten children nationwide are victims of brutal child abuse and the number of severe cases appears to be increasing at an alarming rate.
More than 2,500 children died last year as a result of child abuse. We believe that number should be zero. Help save our children. We are working toward providing a place of safety where the child can be taken once they are removed from their home. This friendly and loving environment will be where the child will live while they are being evaluated and treated for the abuse. It will be a place where they can catch their breath until a suitable, loving home can be found for them to continue the healing process.
Education for Children:
Based on enrollment data, about 72 million children of primary school age in the developing world were not in school in 2012; 57 percent of them were girls. These are regarded as optimistic numbers. Many impoverished schools suffer from an inordinate lack of even the most basic resources and facilities. Most schools have insufficient classrooms, sanitary facilities, desks, chairs, and textbooks. Each classroom has a poor quality blackboard and some chalk but that is the extent of their teaching resources.
LIVE.LOVE.DANCE. is working to improve this situation by working with the schools to find out what they need most and providing it for them as and when we can. We hope that one day all of these schools will be as well equipped as they are in the developed world.
How We Help:
Through events, fundraisers, a mobile boutique, and in-kind donations, LIVE.LOVE.DANCE. raises funds and items to serve to the children who are unfortunately in need. We have made it our goal to help as many children around the world as possible, therefore, we host events such as parties, charity balls, network socials, and much more.
We hope to hear from you, as we are looking for volunteers, interns, sponsors, and investors to help us affectively help the children.
