I am Chris Beckenham, a 21 year old student from Manchester. In 2014, I'm wanting to travel to Delhi, India to help to teach some children out there that aren't lucky enough to get an education.

I am Chris Beckenham, a 21 year old student from Manchester. In 2014 I'm wanting to travel to India to help to teach some children out there.

For many children in India, school is simply not an option as they work the streets with their parents to help stay alive (it is estimated there are 100 million street children in India). Every day, 365 days of the year these children work the streets of Delhi with their parents, selling goods, foraging and performing to make a living. The Slum Teaching program in India, that I'm wanting to take part in, focuses on giving these children an education. The program is popular with the children and their families as it gives them opportunities and perspectives on life they would not otherwise have been provided with. I'm going to be taking basic school lessons in a makeshift classroom within the slums, playing with the children after school, providing one-on-one support for them and introducing them to activities (such as painting) that are not possible outside of the school.
