Why earthian?

We are moving into an unprecedented situation for human life on the planet - a full earth with limited resources, breaching a number of safe limits for human existence while social deprivation continues to be a challenge. Ponder these:

  • In the last 7000 years, in which all of human society and culture evolved, the global climate has never deviated as much as 2° from today's climate. As per the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the best estimate for temperature rise even in a low emission scenario is a steep 3.2° F. We are entering a situation that has never happened in the last 7000 years and that is something human society has never ever faced.
  • Conservative estimates suggest that more than 5000 species of our inherited genetic library irreversibly are extinguished every year. And this is 10000 times as fast as pre-human extinction rates.
  • As per World Bank statistics as of 2010, almost half the world, over 2.4 billion people, still lives on less than $2 a day.
  • According to UNICEF data as of 2010, 22000 children under 5 die every day due to poverty and malnutrition.

The current ways of dealing with these challenges have not created any significant shift in direction - in our thinking, attitude or behavior. It is increasingly becoming clear that we need a new way of thinking, sensibility, behavior and responses to approaching these challenges. earthian aims to help our schools and colleges prepare our younger generation to understand these challenges and build the knowledge, skills and attitude needed to deal with these.

Born in the margins of society and passed over by the mainstream, the children of rag pickers, beggars and other vulnerable urban children are forced to follow the same life as their parents - a life devoid of basic human rights & opportunities. The NGO, with support from Wipro on the educational activities, ensures that 320 former street children get comprehensive long-term care across 4 open residential homes in Delhi. These homes are sensitive to the street-children’s naturally nomadic traits. DilSe also has a rich volunteer base, with each contributor making it a point to ensure that the children receive the opportunity to make a better life.
