Urdu Park shelter phase 1, February 2014

CES (Centre for Equity Studies) runs a shelter for destitute women and children near the Jama Masjid. The women earn from rag picking and begging, the children mostly pick rags. There are many homeless people in the area and their lives are unimaginably hard.  Ita Mehrotra and Jane Kitching led the Artreach team, ably assisted by Rebecca Flitcroft and Sanket Jadia. The children and the women were super enthusiastic. They would love us to come back and paint more, both inside and outside.
