(A pledge for enlightening the underprivileged)
10/16 Netaji Nagar
Every child, in this world is an acknowledged gift from God, irrespective of caste, creed or religion. Our cherished national property, children, have the right to be nurtured and protected by their respective families. But, due to the malfunctioning of our social machinery Children are forced to live on streets and are compelled to survive through hazardous occupations or anti-social activities.
