Some interesting statistics about the population of India
The population of India is approximately 1,382 million.
- India population is equivalent to 17.84% of the total world population.
- India ranks number 2 in the list of countries by population.
- The population density in India is 446 per Km2 (1,156 people per sq mile).
- The total land area is 2,972,892 Km2 (1,147,839 sq. miles).
- 32 % of the population is urban.
- The median age in India is 26.9 years.
It’s certainly true that India has much to admire and in recent years has made some significant economic advances for its middle and upper classes, however, problems rooted in culture and calamity keep much of the population mired in abject poverty. In the remote locations where we work and where communities find it hard to survive, the help that IVCM offers can make a huge difference.
Free Tailoring Training for Widows
IVCM now provides free tailoring lessons for widows who otherwise would not be able to provide for themselves or their families. Once these ladies have finished their training they are given a sewing machine of their own which enables them to earn enough to provide for their basic needs.
These sewing machines cost approximately £85 and give a life time tool for these ladies who otherwise would have few other options to survive. If you are able to help purchase one of these machines please get in touch or use the donate button to bless one of these ladies.
The secret of Happy Children ….
Each year regular support has enabled us to help many children in rural villages by distributing food and gifts and supplementing education. There is so much more to be done to improve their standard of living, please consider joining us or making a one off donation
