More books!

The purpose for our visit to Mumbai was not to look at sunsets and discovering magnificent shops but to bring books to a home for girls who witnessed violence, abuse ,were forced to beg etc. All of them were send there by court order. One house is dedicated to children with HIV.

A former laundry house which will ( hopefully) house the library one day.

Maybe this will be a vegetable plot one day.

Some plants are already waiting to be put into the soil. 


  1. This brought tears to my eyes Karen! What a wonderful thing you are doing!!

  2. books and pencils - yes, they have the power to change lifes ...
    wonderful project, but I have to admit that I loved your first Mumbai post, too.

  3. Such a tremendous project. Many, many years ago I was a Peace Corps teacher in a primary school in the West Indies. Books and other school supplies were in short supply making both learning and teaching a challenge.
