“Education is the most powerful weapon, which you can use to change the world” - Nelson Mandela
In this fast moving world everyone seems to be in a rat-race jostling with their own lives. In this busy journey we tend to close our eyes towards the miserable childhood of the little ones who are condemned to live as poor. They are commonly known as rag pickers, street children, child laborers, dropouts, and anti-social elements and so on. Here children’s home for boys and girls Raichur comes with its integral vision to feel with them and to help them to reinstate their lost childhood by proving wings to their dreams.
