In order to solve the problem various strategies has been implemented. LCDP staff went for home visit and counseled the family members and the child himself. Meanwhile, the child said “I have the great desire to be a good man as the good model of community.” Furthermore, he added “I will go to school if my father provides me the appropriate environment.” The problem of Sudam has been raised in the parents meeting organized at Shikarpa dated 30th August, 2010.
