An overview of the Nai Duniya Children's Activity Center in the rag-picker's colony Lodha Basti, in Manana village, Samalkha town, Haryana, India on 15th June 2012. Most of the children living here are rag-pickers like the rest of their families. They are now able to go to school from 8-12 in the morning, and study again at the activity center after work at 4pm. A new program to encourage the rag-picker's children to attend school is underway, to keep them from becoming the next generation of rag-pickers in cities. Photo by Suzanne Lee for The National
