School for Less Fortunate

07 November 2012

New Delhi, India

Children of local laborers clean the area that serves as their classroom, at a free school under a metro rail bridge, in New Delhi, India.

 

The school was founded by Rajesh Kumar Sharma (40), who was unable to complete his own college education, because of financial difficulties. Every day he takes two hours out to teach, while his brother replaces him at his general store. Together with an assistant, Laxmi Chandra, Sharma gives lessons to around 45 children daily, having persuaded their families to free them from working to earn money. He aims to prepare his students for admission to government schools, and to equip them for overcoming poverty.
