A Makeshift School under Metro Bridge
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.
