about the video

Here’s your dose of inspiration on children’s day. Watch how street children in Delhi are quietly transforming their lives with Balaknama, a newspaper run and edited by them. Based out of Delhi’s slums, Balaknama is completely staffed by children who live and work on the streets. The sixteen-page editorial publishes stories and reports based on the lives of street children. It explores issues like sexual abuse, child labour, police brutality, and also covers feel-good stories. The newspaper currently has over 10,000 children working for it.
