Helping Children Through Love and EducationMany children in India survive on the streets. They live in slums and their parents are either too poor to care for them or need them to work instead of getting an education. Some are even abandoned to the harsh realities of society. Living is stark with very little hope of getting better or changing. Many become victims of disease or social sin with little chance of escape. Ashvirad Kanti helps by offering these children a ray of hope and a better way of life.
