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.
