India

India is the sev­enth-largest coun­try by area, the sec­ond-most pop­u­lous coun­try with over 1.2 bil­lion peo­ple, and the most pop­u­lous democ­ra­cy in the world. Bound­ed by the Indi­an Ocean on the south, the Ara­bi­an Sea on the south-west, and the Bay of Ben­gal on the south-east, it shares land bor­ders with­Pak­istan to the west; Chi­na, Nepal, and Bhutan to the north-east; and Bur­maand Bangladesh to the east. In the Indi­an Ocean, India is in the vicin­i­ty of Sri Lan­ka and the Mal­dives; in addi­tion, India’s Andaman and Nico­bar Islands share a mar­itime bor­der with Thai­land and Indone­sia. 

India became an inde­pen­dent nation in 1947 after a strug­gle for inde­pen­dence that was marked by non-vio­lent resis­tance led by Mahat­ma Gand­hi. The Indi­an econ­o­my is the world’s tenth-largest by nom­i­nal GDP and third-largest by pur­chas­ing pow­er par­i­ty (PPP). Fol­low­ing mar­ket-based eco­nom­ic reforms in 1991, India became one of the fastest-grow­ing major economies; it is con­sid­ered a new­ly indus­tri­alised coun­try. How­ev­er, it con­tin­ues to face the chal­lenges of pover­ty, illit­er­a­cy, cor­rup­tion, mal­nu­tri­tion, inad­e­quate pub­lic health­care, and ter­ror­ism. A nuclear weapons state and a region­al pow­er, it has the third-largest stand­ing army in the world and ranks sev­enth in mil­i­tary expen­di­ture among nations. India is a fed­er­al con­sti­tu­tion­al repub­lic gov­erned under a par­lia­men­tary sys­tem con­sist­ing of 28 states and 7 union ter­ri­to­ries. India is a plu­ral­is­tic, mul­ti­lin­gual, and mul­ti-eth­nic soci­ety. It is also home to a diver­si­ty of wildlife in a vari­ety of pro­tect­ed habi­tats.

Shaan Cre­ations Inter­na­tion­al has been involved in devel­op­ment work in India for almost 20 years now. We have helped sev­er­al schools and child­care orga­ni­za­tions nec­es­sary mate­ri­als and also in many cas­es finan­cial­ly. All the projects we have been involved with have been for the well­be­ing of chil­dren in need. We try to give chil­dren from very poor back­grounds the help they need des­per­ate­ly to sur­vive the harsh real­i­ty they have to live in. Shel­ter, food, cloth­ing and edu­ca­tion are the main ele­ments of our devel­op­ment pro­grams.
