Charting a new path for children in India

Jan 20, 2012

Children tend to follow the patterns of their parents, even if those paths are not the best for their future.

The New Initiatives program in India is introducing a new path for children whose parents are incarcerated, or who have been in trouble with the law themselves.

Working through the Amway Opportunity Foundation and partner Kishore Greh, Amway and its Business Owners established a new Computer & Technical Center in Jodhpur, Rajasthan.

The Center is set up inside the premises of a juvenile home. There, children are trained in the use of computer technology and other mechanical and electrical skills.

 

This training will provide new opportunities when the children are released from juvenile court, and will provide a new path for a better life.
