The family is facing deep financial problems as the head of the family is an alcoholic and also addicted to illegal affairs. As a painter he used to earn meager sums which are spent to fulfill his bad habits without taking care of any of the family responsibilities. He had no concern either family or his health concern that thrown the lives of Anjali and her children in to unwanted hurdles. As there is no support to the family by any means, the boy has stopped his studies in his 9th standard and remained in home.
The girl’s mother learnt tailoring which she wanted to make best use of source of her income to nourish children and sustain her family. Hence, she tried for some credit from the persons whom she acquainted among their tenants. But, the tenants whom she approached for money support have perverted her luring for easy money. Since, she is in the crises without any helping hand at the moment; she had entangled in to the vicious cycle of prostitution and started earning money. After some time she bought a sewing machine and started tailoring too while continuing in prostitution as the money she earn from tailoring is so scanty that could not suffice to meet her family expense. She expressed her wish with her heart’s content that,” my son has stopped education and he is in no way concern over education right now.
My strong desire is to continue my daughter’s education and I want to see her at a position where she could respect herself and makes us to be respected in the society. I trust my girl that she works hard and achieve apex position in her future if she is supported with due care and concern over her education” she requested. HELP organisation as part of its prevention of second generation being trafficked programme extended support to the girl.
