Pehli Kiran,Community Service: By Pir Arkam Photographer

We went to a little poor school, along with story books, colouring books and made these little flowers smile 🙂

Child labor and poverty are inevitably bound together and if you continue to use the labor of children as the treatment for the social disease of poverty, you will have both poverty and child labor to the end of time.

 

Rich kids gave us their old clothes. They were the best clothes we ever had. We were these very pure, naive, poor children. The rich kids called us a lot of names but it never bothered us because we didn’t know what the words meant.

  1. Please do not mind it and you may delete this comment if you find it offence, but it would have been better to focus more on the kids than the participants from the city who are giving an impression of being engaged in slum tourism. Not doubting the good intentions and wonderful gesture on your part to be with these under privileged kids. Just that it would have been better to not make it so obvious. It can be done, by dressing up sensibly for the visit in less glamours attire, which would be more common among them (e.g. salvar-kameez) let the kids showcase their talent in the form of art they may have created during the visit. Be an observer, an enabler rather than the key focus of the event, let the kids be the center of all the attraction, be the hero or heroine for a day in there life. Maybe you guys did that only, but I failed to see it in the pictures. Apologies in advance.

  2. I loved these photos and the story they tell. I love the sense of community involvement, laughter, and fun that these photos project. Simply beautiful!
