2 The Problem: A major proportion of our rural population is flooding into the nearby urban areas in search of work. The women are immediately placed as maids to work more than twelve hours per day. Men try their luck as daily wagers, but often remain jobless and involved in drugs or other antisocial activities. In this way they suffer unforeseen difficulties. Address: 153-B/ P-III, G.E.C.H.S.

3 The Problem contd…… Their children suffer neglect. Not only do their parents abuse them, especially girls, by sending them to work at a very young age, but the corrupt members of the privileged society also misuse and exploit them sexually. As these children grow, they become thieves, pickpockets, beggars and prostitutes. Address: 153-B/ P-III, G.E.C.H.S. Link Model Town Rd. Lahore. Voice: (92-42) , Fax: Web:
