Slum Dwellers Child Care Programmes

We work very closely with slum dwellers and have identified an urgent need for safe child care for working parents.  Due to availability of cheap housing in slums, most single mothers live in these communities and are engaged in low paid employment for very long hours leaving their children with elderly community members who are not even vetted. These carers sometimes care for up to 20 children in one room dwellings with very poor sanitation and toilet facilities.  Some children as young as four years old are merely left to look after themselves and can be seen outside their locked homes with no food provisions.
