Therefore, it is very pleasing that the Mother Theresa Sisters in Agra take care of these children. The children get  food and a roof over their head. Hence the Mother Theresa Sisters help not only these children and their families but make an essential contribution to social justice in India.

 

 

For the further promotion of Small feet – Big tracks:

At the beginning of his work it was hardly possible for most children to move.
