Children Risk Their Lives Every Day To Earn Money From Passengers On Public Transport

Published on 16 August, 2016 at 7:00 pm By

Every year, more and more children end up on India’s streets. Mostly ignored and sometimes cruelly treated, these children grow up risking their lives on a daily basis just to make ends meet. While other kids grow up feeling relatively safe and well-provided-for, these children face great hardship to get the bare essentials.
