HungerFREE children: A photo exhibition


Why: Over half of India’s child population under the age of six
suffers from malnutrition. Most live in families of poor and
marginalised communities. Every fourth child in India never gets to
attend a school.

Living without food, healthcare, education and in an unsafe
surrounding they battle against hunger and dream of a better future
and a better world.

With help from hundreds of community organisations, ActionAid works
with the most vulnerable groups of children across India. We do not
see a child detached from their family and immediate surrounding, so
we work together with families, teachers and government agencies to
get them their right to food, shelter and education.

What: Evocative images of slum children, runaway children on railway
platforms, child labourers that lend a face to childhood wrecked by
poverty, yet celebrating their fight for rights for a better tomorrow.

We as a nation must commit to HungerFREE Children by giving them their
rights and addressing poverty that is at the root of lost childhood.

Come join UK celebrity, Katherine Kelly of Coronation Street fame and
young scholars from slums of Delhi for discussions over high tea!
