We work in one of the poorest areas of Delhi. The squalor and filth of the slums around the extensive rubbish tips have to be seen to be believed. Amidst all this horror, there are some shining lights of hope. This is a photograph taken in Adarsh Nagar Police Station House Officer’s office today. Inspector Sanjay Kumar MA, B Ed, LLB, organises training sessions for young people in the locality.
These girls (and one boy) have been taking English classes at the station. They are currently learning how to present themselves at interviews. Their conversational English was superb. Education leading to employment is the aim. The inspector also supports another group of young people training to be health care assistants. I was really impressed.
