Some final images from our visit to Mayapuri slum in Delhi

Our time at the Mayapuri slum has come to an end. We could talk for many hours about our experiences there, but perhaps the most digestible way of passing on our story is to show a few photos with captions. To see any photo in more detail, just double click on it.
What have we learned? Perhaps the best way of summarising that is to list the ten ASHA values that underpin everything that this wonderful charity does:
  1. Gratitude
  2. Generosity
  3. Compassion
  4. Non-violence
  5. Simplicity
  6. Justice
  7. Empowerment
  8. Joy
  9. Dignity
  10. Optimism
