At Bangalore Oniyavara Seva Coota (BOSCO) we believe that given the right circumstances and a nurturing environment, every child can achieve and grow to be a positive member of our society. In the last 5 years, we have helped over 30,500 street children turn their lives around by reuniting them with their families or housing them ourselves. We are proud to note that this number was submitted and verified by the DD WCD Bangalore Urban, the CWC, the Police Department and also the MCB. It's important to us that we educate these children, provide them with legal assistance and protect them from exploitation.
