Mumbai, 2016 Oct 04 Don Bosco Snehalaya, Gujarat: The work with the marginalised entails that we reach out to them in their particular situation and build a rapport with them. You need to have an open mind set in dealing with these youngsters and one would reach nowhere if we move with a fixed set of ideas. We make initial contact through innovative child friendly approaches and outreach activities. We establish contact with the poor young on the railway platforms, crowded market area, tourist destinations, bus stands, etc. Contact is also made through telephone hotlines like the 'Child Line' where any child in distress can call and receive help. Once the initial contact is made they are provided a place to rest and given protection from violence and abuse, as well as given food and clothing.  Read More »
