LACCS welcome volunteers

About Us WELCOMEThank you for taking the time to browse through this information about our fellowship, our charitable society. The Love and Compassion Charitable Society (LACCS) is a legally registered worldwide society and network of churches. We all share common beliefs in the transforming Power of Love. For God is love. (1 John. 4: 8, 16) We share this worldwide charitable organization. We have joined together to advance the kingdom of God on earth. Each of us serves in his/her own location and surrounding areas. We do this to provide an atmosphere of joy and warmth to disadvantaged children. We want to bring these same gifts to their families. This we can do through compassionate, sustainable, comprehensive and integrated services. Our programs are designed permanently to break the cycles of neglect, abuse, sickness and homelessness.

We are an independent fellowship of ministers. Our initial purpose is to offer cooperation with churches and other organizations. We also want to arrange meetings, worship, seminars, and conferences. In these gatherings, we want to bring together scholars from around the globe. We also want to provide forums for academic and social development and education.

Love and Compassion programs bring together volunteers from worldwide organizations. They work together to care for their neighbors who have long-term health needs. LACCS considers empowerment and networking of the poor as its major goal and objective. LACCS is a player in the fight against rural poverty and hunger.

Our innovative programs include: child adoption, early childhood education, health care services, housing assistance, mental health services, family preservation, foster care, reunification, crisis intervention, recreation, mentoring and job training.

We are best known for our activities in these fields. We serve God in actions.

A FEW FACTS ABOUT INDIA

Area: 7th largest country in the world (about one-third the size of Europe). It has many different soils, landforms, climates, regions, religions, castes, customs, traditions, tribes, rituals, languages, and festivals. Indian Population: India's population crossed the one billion mark at the start of the twenty-first century. This made it the second largest population of any country, after China. The population reached 1.15 billion by March 2004. Sixteen percent of the entire world-population is in India. About fifty thousand children are born in India every day! There are about 953 ethnic groups in India, each with a population of more than a hundred thousand. Nearly 204 ethnic varieties, each with a population of more than fifty thousand, still need a worshiping fellowship! There are several other economic, social, and vocational groups where similar needs are present. Languages: Total languages in India 3,372, as reported in Rajya Sabha (Council of States) in December 2004. India is the only country with 3,372 languages. There are 216 languages in India each spoken by at least ten thousand people. Eighty-one do not have any written Scriptures. Total Zips: There are about 27,000 Postal Zips in India. In 1998, it was found that 18,000 of these postal zip areas did not have a single resident Christian worker as a witness. Cities & Towns,: Total Towns and Cities are 5500. Over 70% of India's population lives in villages. There are 300 cities with over 100,000 populations. Cities contain frightful slums and shantytowns, while homeless thousands sleep on pavements. Out of these, 189 cities have fewer than two percent Christians. Total Villages: 650,000 and over 70% of India's population lives in villages. And over 500,000 villages across India still have no church. Villagers occupy crowded mud huts, drinking unsanitary water. India is an agricultural country. About 60% of the people are engaged in farming. Youths: 40% of Indian population is under the age of 15. Literacy: Literacy rate 51.71% (average for both sexes), rising after 1991, due to the great efforts of Christian missionaries and charities. Education is one of the most important drivers of India's social and economic development. There are still roughly 32 million children, or approximately 40%, in the age group 6-11 years who are deprived of primary schooling. The number deprived of elementary schooling in the age group 6-14 years rises to almost 60 million. Religious Communities: Hindus - 82 . 4% Muslim - 11 . 7% Christians - 2 . 3 % Sikhs - 2 . 0% Buddhists - 0 . 8% Jains - 0 . 4% Others - 0 . 4% States and Territories: The Union of India is made up of 28 states and 7 Union Territories. Poverty in India The major problem that India is facing today is Poverty. It's cause is the fast growing population. According to NSSO Report 1999-2000, the percentage of people below the poverty line is 26 .10%. One third of the world's poor are in India. The value of the Indian currency (July 2005) US $ 1=approx. Rs.44. Housing conditions are also generally bad. They don't even get enough food to eat. They don't even have clothes, or houses. Child Labor in India: Children constitute 36 percent of India's population. The bulk of them suffer malnutrition, poverty, disease, and cruel exploitation. This occurs through forced labor and beggary. Worst of all, there is widespread illiteracy. Hundreds of thousands of children roam the streets without homes or families. It is a matter of monumental shame that, of 30 million street-children worldwide, 11 million are in India. They are leading a wretched life, ill-clad and hungry, sleeping on the pavements, or picking rags. They are begging, or allowing themselves to be exploited in different trades or occupations. Much against their wishes, street-children are also dragged into the mafia underworld as drug pushers. One of the worst forms of child-exploitation is child labor. And India has the largest number of child-laborers in the world. One third of those under the age of 16 are forced to work, often in the most dreadful conditions. Many children have to work for long hours, and are physically abused. As many as 73 million children, representing 13 percent of all Indian children, are working in all kinds of jobs. Even the planners say that the figure of child laborers might be around 17 million; NGO's claim it could be in the vicinity of 20 million. Every child has the basic human right to education, health care, adequate shelter, food and clothing.
