ALUVA: ‘‘Society should work for a country without street-children,’’ said actor Kaviyoor Ponnamma here on Monday.
She was inaugurating a reception accorded to pygmy troupe of actors who were engaged in staging street plays from Kasargod to Kanyakumari, spreading the message of protecting children from the streets.
The street play troupe is planning to open sneha veedu for street children in all the panchayats with the recognition and approval of the government, she said.
‘‘Janaseva Sisubhavan should be a role model for other social service organisations,’’ Kaviyoor Ponnamma said.
She also presented ponnadas to the actors. Janaseva president Jose Mavely presided over the meeting. Senior vice-president Jobby Thomas, vice-president K J Thomas, secretary P J Peter and actor Mujeeb Rehman spoke on the occasion.
