There is something about this young girl's expression that really grabbed me this past week in Madhya Pradesh. She was from the same school as the young girl in the last post, photographed minutes apart. While the other was serious, this one was smiling the entire time.
Both young girls have attended the Step Up program for the past year, presented by Humana India. The idea is to bring children out of school into a one year program which will then allow them to transition into the government system, while also helping to improve the existing school system.
The teacher was wonderful for this visit, and organized the children beautifully. We also had time to make a couple of videos of the children dancing under a tree on a hillside, and I look forward to presenting it in the near future.
