Student Art, Shamli District, Uttar Pradesh, India, 2018

Before classes began last year such public displays of art were rare. Now girls get to sit down with each other, paper on the floor and paint brushes in hand, to create images. Some do so from their day to day experiences, some do so from lands far away.

The energy as this happens is hard to describe, an amazing moment to experience in person. Here is a piece by one of the students in Shokeen's village, one of the most sublime places on earth to be. In this village change is happening, and just today I received a message from one of its residents sharing their pride in the progress being made.

Together we can make the difference so many dream of!
