The children in menace are not able to enjoy their legitimate right to play associate and educate.

Socioeconomic deprivation and parents surmountable pressure on the children often force the children to fly from their home, unfortunately these children entangled in the hands of the malefactors, and many children end up as victims of sexual exploitation, child laborers and bonded laborers, and even they are used for drug trafficking. Furthermore, the school educational system and the teachers' over control also chief factors in driving the children out of their homes.
