Summer at the NFE Center
Over the summer, children from the Non-Formal Education Center in Shivdaspur, Varanasi’s Red Light District, made several trips to a nearby water park. The children played and enjoyed themselves so much that they were inspired to build a scale model of the water park in one of the center’s rooms. Children constantly meet at the center to engage in art projects, clay work, and more practical activities as well. It is difficult for children brought up in the Red Light Area to find paths outside of the sex industry, so Guria provides vocational training to broaden their skill sets. Self-motivated center attendees can participate in beautician training, fashion design class, and computer skills training. Please visit our Photo Highlights page for more pictures of Guria’s activities over the past few months.
