Garden Schools of Mumbai: How one woman took two and two, and got seven

The Garden Schools of Mumbai is the story of underprivileged children and their changed lives. It is also the story of an ambitious woman who got tired of her desk job and decided to do something more meaningful with her life.

The kids from the slums play in the gardens in and around Mumbai. Residents of the neighbouring areas come for walks to the same gardens. Wonder what you could do with the two?

Anubha Sharma, found her calling in life and started Angel Xpress, an NGO that bring these two together. They use public spaces like gardens to teach children the nitty-gritty of being in a civilised social space.

With over 800 underprivileged children in around eight city gardens with 200 volunteers, this NGO calls out to anybody who wants to help. Not just via monetary contributions, but also by becoming a teacher and educating the underprivileged.

This is their story.
