These children are unloved, unwanted, and endure abuse on many levels. Father Gabriel has learned through his work with the street children that the desire to move away from their life on the streets must come from within the children themselves. Over time an extraordinary transformation in the lives of the children takes place. They are freed from the torments they endured living on the streets, recover from their drug addictions and begin to gain an education.
