100,000+ children reached in 270+ construction sites
Crisis: Over 11 million Indians work in the construction sector. The construction workers' children (over 30,000 in Mumbai) are vulnerable and frequently suffer from malnutrition, undernourishment, accidents on the sites and other health problems.
