Areas :- covered -Kusumpur Pahari, Bhanwar Singh Camp, Bhatti Mines
Working with :-Marginalized and Working Children.

Three main problems hold back people living in the slums of South Delhi: lack of education, lack of formal training and poor health. Many young girls and many migrant children support their family at home, looking after siblings. As such they may not have access to any education. Many poor and jobless mothers in the region also have little or no training in any vocation. The cost of such training and commitments at home keep these women, and some men, keeps these people firmly stuck in the poverty trap.

A poor sense of hygiene and a dirty environment means that people living in the slums are sick very often and as such are unable to maintain a consistent source of income.
