It was really difficult to establish such a concept in society which was in support of a socially discarded community, I started this venture with literally no support but I am happy that it became successful initially. It makes me feel gratified that I am doing something to support this community who has always been discarded socially and are bound to beg and do odd jobs to earn their livelihoods but this a platform which gives them a recognition in the society.
