Meet the woman who quit her job to turn a skywalk into a classroom for poor kids

Haimanti Sen founded a non-governmental organisation after quitting her job. The NGO, called Junoon, provides basic education to poor kids for free. This 25-year-old can be seen imparting basic education to 15 children on the skywalk at Mumbai’s Kandivali station.

Haimanti Sen, gave up her well-paying career to ensure that at least some of Mumbai’s impoverished children receive basic education and skills. She built Junoon, a non-governmental organization with which numerous like-minded persons are affiliated. They teach the alphabet, numbers, vocabulary, art, and communication to the youngsters.

It all began when Haimanti noticed a few children begging for food and money on the street.
However, the parents blatantly lied about the children attending school. Haimanti took the decision to teach the children at that point. She contacted a local school about enrolling some of them.

Haimanti began teaching them in order to prepare them for official schooling under the Right to Education Act. So far, this vivacious woman has been effective in teaching 15 children a basic set of skills and information.
