A Look of Hope

In these slums, balwadi(preschools) are beginning to open to allow these children to get an education there parents never dreamed of. The balwadi teach the children to read and write in up to three languages (Hindi and English, and sometimes a local native tongue). Without this basic education, slum children are refused admittance into elementary school. This little girl was the youngest in the balwadi we visited.
