The Rag-pickers of Delhi

 Part of Resources
Rag Pickers Of Delhi

School & Youth

Meet Azijul, Taniya and Naseema from the slums of New Delhi and see how Sharan, a local organisation, is working with their community to bring hope to the people who live under the bridge.

The Rag-Pickers of Delhi classroom resources include:

  • modular lesson plans
  • activity sheets
  • simulation game
  • children's talk for a church service
  • relevant actions for children to take
  • photographs, project information and other material
  • a 10 minute video where you meet kids from the slums of Delhi

Note: Since the original filming of this documentary, Azijul, Taniya & Naseema have grown up. The basti under the bridge that was their home was eventually closed down by the city authorities. The families who lived there were relocated. TEAR partners in India continue to work alongside people like Azijul and his family, as they develop ways to tackle poverty and injustice in their own communities. Through our relationships with Indian partners, and with the communities in which they work, we continue to learn about the problems poor and marginalised people face, and how we can best act to see change.
