A free hot meal is the reason Meena goes to school.



But her teachers routinely skip school, three days a week. When teachers don’t come, the school stays shut, and there’s no meal. A well-funded, well-intentioned program created to educate and feed poor children fails on both counts: Meena not only learns nothing, she also goes hungry.

IN a society with few effective regulatory institutions, there’s neither an incentive to take responsibility nor repercussions for not doing so. People don’t do the right thing because it’s easy not to, and there’s no reward for doing it. Villagers are preoccupied with their own daily survival. And it’s easier for bureaucrats to do nothing.




A lack of accountability not only kills motivation, it encourages outright malfeasance. In India’s poorest districts, easily bribed police officers enable trafficking. India, according to Unicef, now has more child laborers under 14 than any other country.




The government must move beyond merely developing ambitious policies — it must also ensure that these policies aren’t corrupted. There must be stern reprisals for graft and dereliction of duty. And it must be worthwhile for poor people to do the right thing; they should be rewarded for good behavior. Prosecution of child-labor traffickers and their henchmen must be accelerated. And India needs to overhaul its system of state-run foster homes so that children don’t avoid them out of fear.

Sustainable Green Initiative plants fruit trees on community lands like orphanages and old age homes and on lands owned by marginal and Bpl farmers.  We work with self help groups and NGOs who help us identify right beneficiaries who can continue the process of planting and nurturing trees. (See our methodology).

Planting fruit trees helps combat hunger, poverty and global warming. Did you know a tree sequesters about 1 ton of carbon and processes enough oxygen for two peoples requirements in its life-time?
