LITTLE LIVES ON THE STREETS
"Didi 1rupiya do na", ' Saheb ek phool le lo. "We often hear such things on the roads, near traffic signals, in the trains etc. How do we react when we see these little children clinging to our clothes, touching us and begging?" We get irritated and we say "dur ja hath mat laga".
Is it all these kids deserve? Our rejection, false attitude, and bad words. These children don't deserve our misbehaviour because they are forced to beg and sell products either by their destiny. No matter how people are they certainly don't lose the Dignity of being a Human being and above all these are "CHILDREN".
Ever wondered why Street Children beg? May be, its because we have so many things that these children are Deprived of. Here in 'Sparsha Charitable Trust' we are making lot of efforts to Provide these children at least of something that we all have. We provide them with Education, legal documents and various opportunities to Grow and Build themselves.
It is a known fact that over 45% Mumbai's population lives in slums and pavements. A single room is all that the entire family has to satisfy all their needs. Often both the parents are working for the livelihood and the living condition is extremely detrimental to the healthy growth of the child. Many a times the younger children are taken with the parents to their work sites like domestics, rag pickers, beggars, construction workers, hawkers etc. or instead of sending to schools they are forcefully sent to earn money through begging at signals, in trains, wiping cars, etc. thus the child in these families becomes an earning members at early age.
It is not the ill will of the parents but often their own socio; cultural, economic situation of the parents that causes the child's neglect and its lack of all round development.
We need Funds to develop a holistic intervention through:
