A free school under a bridge in India


Founder of a free school for slum children Rajesh Kumar Sharma, second from right, and Laxmi Chandra, right, write on black boards, painted on a building wall, at a free school run under a metro bridge in New Delhi, India. At least 30 children living in the nearby slums have been receiving free education from this school for the last three years.

Rajesh Kumar Sharma, teach Somnath, an underprivileged Indian slum child at the school.

Preach the Gospel at all times, and when necessary, use words. – St. Francis of Assi

The truth is that the 143 million orphaned children and the 11 million who starve to death or die from preventable diseases and the 8.5 million who work as child slaves, prostitutes, or under other horrific conditions and the 2.3 million who live with HIV add up to 164.8 million needy children,  And though at first glance that looks like a big number, 2.1 billion poeple on this earth proclaim to be Christians.

The truth is that if only 8 percent of the Christians would care for one more child, there would not be any statistics left.

This is the Truth. I have the freedom to believe it. The freedom, the opportunity to do something about it. The truth is that He loves these children just as much as He loves me and now that I know, I am responsible.

How cute is she?

My roommate fell asleep in her freshly dried laundry this afternoon after she dumped it on her bed.  How did I get so blessed with the most darling girl as my best friend on this side of the country?
