About two years ago, as I stopped behind a traffic light, I was suddenly confronted with several small children, from both sides of the car, trying to persuade me to buy something from them to give them something. I wanted to rise up and scream and ask what can I do to stop this; as I was filled with great rage and anger at the fact that these children, like all other children, should be at school and that they are my children too. I asked myself, what on earth I can do to help in order to give these children a better future as a long term goal, and to bring these scruffy darlings a little physical security, and some emotional security-blanket in the short term. Only yesterday I found my answer. -Syma Sayyah, Tehran
