COMMUNITY VOICE:<br/> 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. "We encourage these children and adolescents to take up work like rickshaw/rehra pulling, tailoring or any other work depending on their interest and ability instead of begging," says founder Liza Chawla. 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.

"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.
