Free school under a bridge, New Delhi. India.

 

Rajesh Kumar Sharma, a shopkeeper, and his colleague, Laxmi Chandra, write on black boards painted on a building wall at a free school run underneath a metro bridge in New Delhi, India. At least 30 children from the nearby slums have been attending and receiving a free education from their makeshift school for the last three years.

 

The children attend class for two hours each day where they learn math and basic reading and writing skills. Sharma says his greatest achievement is changing the attitude of his students’ parents, many of them now encourage their children to study.
