Society had many destitute and orphans as also sex workers who had children who needed a respectable position. These children were at times subjected to physical, emotional, and mental pressures. At times, they were deprived of food, love, homes and thus were leading an abandoned life. These children also faced health problems thus making it a very difficult situation for them. Smt. Lata Pande and Shri Amit Kumar Banerjee the founders of Samparc realized that an organization specially for such children needs to be formed so that they are not only identified as children of destitute women, sex workers or are labeled as orphans.
