Previously we have distributed free uniform to 60 Vadaar children who are entering now getting entrance in the main stream of education by the efforts of People to People. These children were begging in the past but now they are going to school to get education and feel a part of society like other children. Thanks to our donors who helped us to purchase the uniform for those children.
