  15. 15. SEED- The NGO Sheltering the needs of the poor children<br />Seed believes in bringing out the potential of each child by individual care and attention.

Seed provides the critical support necessary for the children to realize their potential and succeed - compete on par with children from more advantaged classes. <br />

  17. 17. Challenges faced by slum people at Karumbalai<br />Life in a slum is hard to imagine. Overcrowding means that privacy is impossible. Water supplies and sanitation are virtually non-existent - to have a tap with running water would be a luxury; a toilet simply a dream. Makeshift shelters provide little or no protection from the heavy monsoon rains or the soaring heat of Madurai&apos;s 38 degree summers, and so houses that were crude to begin with often degrade over time.The immediate environment also has serious disadvantages. Very few lanes between the houses are paved and so any rain quickly reduces the surface to a quagmire, and people have to wade through mud and water overflowing from drains. There are no facilities for refuse disposal and rubbish builds up around people&apos;s homes, where pigs and flies delight in the heaps of rotting waste. <br />
  18. 18. Role of Social Worker in a Slum<br />A social worker must not neglect do some valid contributions like arranging good food, provide higher & standard uniform education, clothing facilities and shelter for a peaceful living.<br />A social worker must be also a good fund raiser from various charitable and noble hearted institutions including the government.<br />A Social Worker has to “TALK MORE, WORK MoRE”<br />
