Children & Communities

The children at Aseema, like all children, are intelligent, eager and full of curiosity. They are also extremely vulnerable and at risk because of the environment they live in. Their homes - mostly unauthorized structures made of tin or plastic sheets – face threat of being demolished quite frequently. Their slum communities grapple with illness, violence and abuse and the insecurity created by such an environment affects children the most. In the midst of this all, however, you will often see bright young faces laughing with abandon.
