Does it include VDO lectures or Films or CDs for the underpriviledged Street and slum Children?
We have an ongoing need for needy children for their non-formal education at Railway station or other slum areas with many without parents or with single parent


ps:Grant is not the issue I think we can work together for some good project even if the money is to be used from our side.Whatever one can do is not enough compared to the Networked Effort and hence this communication
Thanks for your time
