SPARC (Society for the Protection of the Rights of the Child) organized the Mango Gathering with Street Children with the collaboration of RightsNow Pakistan (RNP) at SPARC office.

The children enjoyed the Mango Celebration and kids from the age of five to thirteen shared their experiences with RNP members like how they used to spend their day at SPARC center and what they have learned yet?


kids at Mango Gathering

We found children happy while showing their arts and skills to visitors and happier when they were rewarded.

Most of them like to do coloring in their books. while a couple of them mentioned “they enjoyed the character play games more than the learning where they get to wear the different costumes of Superman and other characters.

These street children have immense potential but need is of resources to be spent on them. To save them from the clutches of vultures of society and equipping them with Education, Knowledge and Skills. Their skills need institutional support to furnish them.

There was a complaint in their eyes that they are not being taken care properly by their government and society.

The girls were equally happy to be a part of Mango Gathering and showed the RNP members the different Craft Work they have created.
