Cassie Pupovac, a teaching artist from the American Embassy School in Delhi, visited the girls of this Salaam Baalak home a number of times over several months from October 2014 to May 2015. Gradually they worked towards creating a mural for their recreation space.
From the girls’ drawings Cassie sketched out a plan for the mural. As the wall was red brick we first had to prime an area and this took one session. The next three Sundays we came and the girls brought to life a sunny, fun and flowery landscape scene. Some of them were as young as six and they all did a marvellous job.
