This Slum School in Gurugram Has Walls That Speak Through its Wall Paintings

The creative initiative is part of the publisher's support to the learning needs of the Centre's children, which includes books, stationary, learning infrastructure and teacher training.

Once plain and bland, the walls of a school in the Nathupur Pahari slum here are now sporting vibrant wall art murals on key social issues like environmental conservation, girl child literacy and the importance of hygiene.
