The Setrawa Empowerment Centre – a colourful building which whispers wonderful stories of children’s dreams, echoes laughter, oozes knowledge and encourages individuality – to have only previous read of the centre and seen online pictures, to actually stand in the courtyard was a surreal moment – I felt as though I was truly a part of something remarkable and tomorrow, my first day of teaching for Sambhali Trust couldn’t come any sooner. . . this empty shell would be filled with the smiles of India’s tomorrow!
Each school can, once again, become what it was always meant to be a building that has four walls with tomorrow inside.
