I first heard of Angels of Sunset online. There is this young lady who posted that she was so much interested in working with kids especially from slums,as majority of them looked upto her as their role-model. Just like that,...

Gone are the days when after finishing form 4, girls would be dreaming of becoming air hostess, lawyers,accountants or even doctors.
