H4ZP founded Little Hearts, a Child Care & Development Center for Children
WHAT IS LITTLE HEATS?
Is a round-the-clock child care and development center established to provide a warm and loving environment for street children or children with parents who cannot support them financially. The center is located in Faridabad, India; 31 kilometers south of New Delhi.
WHY LITTLE HEARTS?
Many children living in extreme conditions in India are given no other option but to sacrifice their education in order to work. The children make this choice simply to be able to afford a daily meal. Unfortunately, these children do not receive the proper education or basic skills necessary to qualify for higher-paying jobs when they become adults. Research has shown that the practice of child labor deprives children of their childhood and is harmful to their physical and mental development.
WHAT TYPE OF SUPPORT IS PROVIDED BY THE CENTER?
Little Hearts (sponsor by H4ZP) provides underprivileged children with the opportunity to obtain an above-average education and strong social development. It also provides them with the support required to keep them off the streets, where they would otherwise be begging or working for money.
WHO FUNDS LITTLE HEARTS?
Little Hearts is entirely funded by donations; 100 percent of the proceeds are spent towards the welfare of the children. Without monthly donations from contributors, the center cannot operate.

Rent: 10,000 Rupees ($154)
