Project Type
 Special Needs Children From Socially Disadvantaged Backgrounds

These are for children who have special problems created by the lifestyles they are forced into such as prostitution, rape, drugs and living on the streets. These children face great social disadvantage because of their backgrounds. They often represent extremely disadvantaged urban communities such as those of street children, sex-workers' children and children addicted to drugs. In most cases the children are often without any kind of parental support. The schooling for these children typically includes appropriate education and vocational training. Where relevant, treatment, therapy and group counseling is also provided. Some groups work with the children for many years till they are ensured placement in jobs.
