I am the Community Correspondent from Lucknow. I work with poor children living in the slums of Lucknow in a school called “Timbaktu”. I am very concerned of the way poor children are denied access to education. I had recently done video in my city on an entire school that is being run in one small room. As a community correspondent of IndiaUnheard, I aim to bring to light the issues of the urban poor and the especially, women and children.
