kid kadam

Sixteen-year-old Chandni is the editor of a newspaper, Balaknama (Children’s Voice) written by and for street kids. Chandni herself has lived on the streets since she was born. She currently shares a makeshift tent with her mother and four siblings on the outskirts of Delhi in India; her father died years ago.  When she was 10, workers from the charity Badhte Kadam approached her on the street and helped her go to school. 

Kudos to Chandni and Badhte Kadam!
