6. Prakash Kaur

When she was a child, her family left her on the streets 60 years ago. But after growing up, she decides she will not allow any girl to be alone. So she opened a Unique Home for girls where she takes care of those girls who have been abandoned by their families. In her house she equally welcomed all the religions, all the girls are having Hindu, Muslim, Christian, and Sikh names. She treats all these girls as her own child, and she said she doesn’t want to give them up for adoption.
