Balaknama is a newspaper in Delhi which gives street children there a voice. It is researched, written and edited by street children, and operates under the umbrella of CHETNA (Childhood Enhancement Through Training and Action). We have known about it for some time, and last December, Gordon visited their offices in Delhi and met a past editor, who had ‘retired’ at the age of 18 !

SSSK is pleased to be able to support Balaknama with an annual donation of £500, and we mention the amount at the specific request of CHETNA.

Please find links to recent editions of the newspaper Balaknama April 2017  Balaknama July 2017

The range of activities undertaken by CHETNA  described in Annual-Report-CHETNA-2015-16 have many positive outcomes for street-connected children both in Delhi and elsewhere.
