In November 2009 We visited New Delhi as part of a speaking tour arranged by our Indian representatives. One of our representatives, Amit Aneja, suggested that we should take some time to look at the work of a project in the slums of the city called “Project Why,” started in the year 2000. Mannu and Family The projects aim is simply to give the poorest children of the slums the same chance of an education, and therefore employment, as their better off peers. We were so impressed at how much had already been achieved with so little that we comitted to helping them as much as we can.
