The Indian population includes thousands of small tribal and ethnic groups, living primarily in remote villages. In these tribal regions, the only source of income is small-scale agriculture or livestock raising.

Often, poor tribal families move to cities for employment. However, they typically find few job opportunities and end up living in slums in the worst of conditions.

The children of tribal families are often left on their own, under the care of the oldest sibling while parents work.
