A Makeshift School under Metro Bridge

National Edu News

The space beneath the Delhi Metro Bridge was converted into a makeshift school for over 300 under privileged children. It is run by Rajesh Kumar Sharma, a 49 year old shopkeeper. He is the sole earning member of his family and has been doing this social service for the past eight years. The classes are run in two shifts from 9-am to 11 am for 120 boys and 2-4.30 pm for 180 girls. He couldn't complete his college studies due to financial troubles and now spends 50 hours a week teaching children for free.
