The Good Samaritan School, Madanpur Khadar and Dakshinpuri, Delhi

Still working through remnants of the trip to Delhi last fall, these images were made in the communities of Dakshinpuri and Madanpur Khadar. Dakshinpuri is a resettlement colony that was set up to relocate large slum colonies that were established when migrant workers came to Delhi looking for jobs. Madanpur Khadar is also known as JJ Colony. Most of these images were made in either colony adjacent to a Good Samaritan School, a school which exists to serve the poor, assisting families who would otherwise be unable to provide a good education for their children.
