 NEED OF THE PROJECT:
 RDAS is a non-governmental, voluntary organisation working in the field of creative child wood health and development in
Tiruvannamalai Block of Tiruvannamali District, Tamil Nadu, South India. The staff of RDAS and its office bearers are all coming from
the villages The very common observation that was made during the course of the year working in our project villages, they have
observed that in each village. At lest 5 to 14 age children are found to be the neglected lot. They are either parentless or only have
one parent and also from the lower socio-economic states of the population. These children are engaged in the collection and sale of
rage, old papers and other materials like waste paper, plastic bags. Polythene sheets, plastic and glass bottles and iron scraps.
According to a through estimate about 60% of street children and 40% or plan take to rag picking to eke out a living.
 Recently, our RDAS conducted a survey and analysis of the data revealed that poverty is the breeding ground for this profession.
These children come from very poor families, they have to supplement the family income to meet their daily necessities. The family
income is so low that without the earnings of these children, it is difficult for them to have adequate meals, most of the children are
below 3 years to 14 years of age. They showed interest in studies and told that they had a tended school but dropped out because
their parents could not provide them books, uniform and school fees. Theses position to attend school due to their parents poverty.
These children of 28Nos receive cuts which some time develop into wounds and then cause tetanus. Their hands and feet are swollen
and they work carelessly. When asked why they do not go to a dispensary or hospital, they replied that time the doctor prescribes
medicine which we can not but. They are prone to dangerous diseases like tetanus,
 skin diseases and tuberculosis. Most of these children are uncared for want of enough financial support. Casual talks with the
children revealed that they are displeased about their parents day living condition. Discussions with the parents revealed that they
cannot give more care for these children because of their poor earning capacity. Under these circumstances, there is very possibilities
that without the care of a few years form now they made any day turn out to be street children.

 The children them selves do not desire any Rehabilitation in the form of home or vocational placement since they equate these
with imprisonment, with controls and regulations which are totally against their concept of liberty. However all of them wanted to have a
decent place to live in or to rest and sleep at nights.

 In order to percent these 5 to 14 age group child disadvantaged children becoming street children (or) ran a way from homes,
RDAS has proposed to give additional support to the parents for the caring of thee children.

 CAUSES OF MIGRATION:

 Poverty, drinking habit among the parents, neglect, ill-treatment and beating, broken homes etc, some came for liberty,
enjoyment and a Jolly living. Lack of proper nutritious food can stunt children’s Physical growth, retard their in talent or even kill them,
Because of the above reasons and objectives, over RADS is willing to start such programme to give domiciliary are.
