Many children sleep on empty stomachs waiting for their parents to return from work
“I don’t want to take my children to the site. But where will they stay after school is over at 2 pm? I have to work till 5 pm.”
A little over a kilometre away is a slum, the residents of which work at adjacent construction sites. Many parents leave their children at home alone under the inspection of their neighbours. Many other labourers also bring their children to the construction sites, where children play with sand and pebbles in hazardous surroundings.
Many children sleep on empty stomachs waiting for their parents to return from work. Don’t they deserve something better?
