With every such family Grownup girls and married women (mother of the children) always have to face the problem in their daily life. Often these families bring their children to help them in begging ,household work ,rag picking activities, even some girls been forcibly thrown to the dark life of prostitution. So it is really a shame of the so called civilised societies. We have got our few projects for these unfortunate street children at the different locations of big cities.
