Everydaychildhood- Ahmer Khan’s depiction of a school under a bridge | Leher NGO in India

@ahmermkhan is an independent photographer, who previously worked with the World Health Organization. His portfolio boasts of work with @buzzfeed, @guardian, @vicenews, @csmonitorpics, @BBC, @aljazeera and many other popular publications.

Ahmer’s proclivity towards social issues is apparent through his instagram feed that highlights the lives of homeless rickshaw pullers in Kolkata, children blinded by pellets in Kashmir, Rohingya muslims taking refuge in Delhi, adivasi children in Madhya Pradesh and victims of the Nepal earthquake, amongst others.

His portrayal of children going to school under a bridge in Delhi not only shows their zest and enthusiasm to learn but also their struggle to achieve a most basic right to education.

Underprivileged Indian children study at a free school run under a metro bridge in New Delhi, India. At least 250 children living in the nearby slums have been receiving free education from this school for the last 6 years. Most of the students who attend this school are born to migrant workers, labourers, rickshaw-pullers, daily wagers who live in shacks & hutments in the villages in East Delhi. Rajesh Kumar, 55, a grocery store owner in Delhi started this free school under the bridge in 2009. Interestingly, Kumar himself is a college dropout.
