Asha student Vandana from Mayapuri slum community

Dr Kiran: ‘Hello everyone, below is a moving video of Vandana, recorded by her in English. I have to say I was impressed by the level of English displayed. She is being given English lessons by an 18 year old enthusiastic teacher called Julianna. Julianna is now a freshman student at university in the US. She is the daughter of a wonderful supporter and friend Steve Watson.

Well done Julianna and Vandana! Who knows where Vandana will go next?
