The Kalleda Rural School Photoblog

If there are one link you click on today, make it this one. The BBC profiles the Kalleda Photo Project

Children at a rural school in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh are running a photoblog about daily life in their village, Kalleda. The school gives children from poor families a free education.

The photo project of the RDF (Rural Development Foundation) school has helped school children learn English, connect them with the world and provided the world with a window into rural India.

Some of the sets are so delightful. Like this one titled People Carrying Things On Their Heads. And the one that is so insightful in its elegance and simplicity – titled Work.

  3. Its great to see the world open up for the poor kids! A brief search, gives an interesting insight into the origins of RDF ….. ‘An unused ansectral mansion coverted into a school by the family members’ … isn’t that inspiring ?
