India’s population comprises almost 40% of us and yet we receive only 4% of the entire budget. It’s not enough.
We, the children of India need adequate financial resources and appropriate spending to transform our status of education, health, nutrition and protection, especially for the most disadvantaged and marginalised.
Invest in us today to give us a better future! Make India’s children a priority while budgeting for 2017-18.
Pledge your support by signing this petition and give us an equal opportunity to fulfill our dreams.
