These innocent souls are already frustrated after seeing their parents struggling for the survival of their children and their siblings who are starving for food. The reward of financial support to their fami...

As you all know, education is and has always been the first priority of every country, but still we can't reach the goals we always aim at. Education emergencies are being applied to spread the awareness of a literate mind, but we are still struggling. The reason is that a poor father would not send his son to a school. Instead, he will finds importance in money and will send him to work and bring money home. Educating the mind will eliminate these kinds of thoughts. An educ...
