Who we work with?
At Rakshak, we work with children coming from the slums and also with children who live in populated city settlements. The Times of India produced a report on January 18th, 2016 stating that it has been gathered from a survey by Tamil Nadu Slum Clearance Board (TNSCB) that the slums in Chennai have increased about 51.8% in the last decade. Most of our children come from financially struggling families who barely have two meals a day. The parents of our children are mostly daily laborers and a lot of our children come from women headed households as their fathers have deserted the family. The community our children live in, is characterized by lack of basic amenities such as water, electricity and toilets. This also a place where crime thrives, prostitution exists and health hazards multiply in numbers.
