Me apasiona:

VOZ DE LA COMUNIDAD: Un poco de esperanza

Chhoti Si Asha es un centro sin fines de lucro que brinda alfabetización y capacitación vocacional a chicos de la calle de Chandigarh, India. Fundado por Liza Chawla en abril de 2006, el programa empezó cuando un grupo de niños que solían pedir limosna expresaron su deseo de estudiar. Gradualmente, empezaron a ir los hermanos mayores de esos niños. "Alentamos a estos niños y adolescentes a tomar trabajos como conductores de rickshaw/rehra, sastres o cualquier otro trabajo dependiendo de su interés y habilidad, en lugar de mendigar", dice la fundadora Liza Chawla. En abril de 2007, Chotti Si Asha hizo su primera exposición en el mismo mercado en el que estos niños solían pedir. Joyshri Lobo informa sobre el evento.

A Little Hope

Chhoti Si Asha is a non-profit center that offers vocational training and literacy skills to street children of Chandigarh, India. Founded by Liza Chawla in April 2006, the program began when a group of children who used to beg for alms expressed a wish to study. Gradually, the older siblings of these children began attending. "At Chotti Si Asha, we are determined to work with the children as opposed to working for them. Love, acceptance and perseverance are our cornerstone--it is from this space that the entire endeavor flows," says Liza. "We encourage these children and adolescents to take up work like richshaw/rehra pulling, tailoring or any other work depending on their interest and ability instead of begging."

In April 2007, Chotti Si Asha put up its first exhibition in the same market plaza where these children used to beg. Joyshri Lobo reports on the event.
