Their father took them to work in the fields. B.D.P. School located this family and admitted all the children. One boy is in class X in another school, with B.D.P. School affording his education expenses. The other children are studying in the school, and their performance is good. They are also good at sports, music, and debates. If the children had not been admitted to B.D.P. School, they would have ended up as child labour.
