Ashok Kumar is 11 years old. When his father died in 2005 his mother was unable to cope. When his brother died due to her neglect, Ashok’s uncle took him in. How-ever with three children of his own he was finding it increasingly difficult to support them all. Ashok joined the CSO home in July and as a result can now continue with his education.

Joseph

 

Joseph

 

When Joseph was 2½ years his father Yesu died. In February 2014 Lakshmi married another man, Ravi, who despite earlier promises to care for them, sent them away to Narasayapalem, 350km from their home to stay with their maternal grandmother. Their grandmother is over 65 and unable to work. Some nights she goes begging in order to feed her grandchildren. Neither child was attending school. Many times she asked the CSO Home to take one boy into the CSO home, so they decided to take younger one in July 2015.

Rajesh Babu is 12 years old and his sister Sandhya Rani is 9. Their father died in 2011 and their mother, unable to cope with her grief, became mentally ill, and disappeared in the same year. The children’s grandfather has been looking after the children but is unable to work. The children have therefore been sent out begging three days a week. They started at the CSO home in July and are now well fed and able to attend school again.
