Chennai is one of the largest cultural and commercial centers in Tamil Nadu; it is also one of the largest cities in India. Growth and development in the city has seen a rapid growth over the years. An increase in the population of Chennai has also been witnessed in the city; this has led to a rise in poverty rate.
People migrate to cities in search of better livelihood. However, that purpose is not solved in Chennai and people end up living in slums with no or minimal access to basic amenities.
Children, especially girls are forced to drop out of school at an early age and are expected to help earn extra income for their family. Human Trafficking is also prominent in the city; abandoned and parentless children are affected the most by this condition.
