After the DDA demolished a school in Chilla on July 18th 2011, World Faith New Delhi is happy to share that the Chilla Khadar children have received shelter in order to continue their education. In order to acquire a shelter, the chapter filed a PIL and received some favorable orders, but these orders were not implemented. The chapter continued to follow up with DUSIB and MNGO in order to install a Porta Cabin at Chilla. A Porta Cabin is usually meant for night shelter, however, the chapter is using it in the day time to informally school the children. More than 150 children that were living on the streets are now attending this informal school. Here are some pictures that illustrate the progress that has been made! A special thanks to Sanjay, Aarti, Doug, Shalini , Shehla and Jayshree for helping in this struggle. Let’s hope the DDA doesn’t come and demolish it again!
Wishing everyone a happy and healthy new year! This chapter had a great start to the new year, and we hope you all do as well!
