(Last Updated On: March 10, 2021)

Youth Clubs are helping teenagers make better decisions

Urban slums in India are the hub of street crimes, substance abuse, school dropouts, child marriage, and gang fights – and children and teenagers are at risk of being influenced by and lured into these activities.

Youth clubs are forming an integral part of our program where we aim to reintegrate dropouts back in schools, provide holistic education and assist in rehabilitating youth dealing with substance abuse and other evils. This video explains how children are being influenced for the better through these clubs.

One part writer, one part photographer & two parts traveller… Three years ago I decided something needed to change, so I quit my corporate job and started working for Asian Aid from my home in India. I travel to projects and schools we support in India and Nepal, bringing you their stories through words, photos and video. Since then I have been visiting Asian Aid projects with my camera and notebook in tow, to bring pictures and stories from the field to you.
