Tens of thousands of children live on the streets and in the public spaces of Delhi, the capital of India. A few hundred of them come within the orbit of Butterflies, an organization determined to equip for them for a better life. Butterflies gives homeless boys shelter from the elements, protection from violence and a chance to get an education that has been denied to them.
