For desperately poor families in urban slums, every day is a struggle for survival. Suffering from hunger and
sickness, a young child dies every 4 seconds. Founded in 2007, Give A Child Life (GCL) helps save the lives and
nurture the growth of the world’s most vulnerable young children by providing urgently needed food, medicines,
child care and other necessities.
Every weekday GCL provides nutritious meals to more than 200 little boys and girls. In addition, emergency food
is given to families in crisis.
Small space Door Step Gardens improve children's health and help families become more self-sufficient. Very
inexpensive and easy to maintain, gardens like these are changing the face of urban slums.
