The community outreach programs you will be involved in are in some of the poorest neighbourhoods of Delhi. These communities are often affected by issues of substance abuse, petty crime, gender inequality, malnutrition and lack of sanitation. The children in turn are neglected, they drop out of school, and turn to begging and petty theft. Our goal is to help individuals gain control of their own lives as well as rehabilitate children by providing remedial education and life training.
