The Dharavi Shelter reopened on Sunday with a new roof, new windows and back door, and an exhibition of the kids’ photos. The Shelter will now also function as a gallery welcoming visitors throughout the week. We are aiming at sustaining the activities through the art produced there, which can be bought at the Shelter itself. If you wish to visit the Shelter Gallery, please contact us a day before.

Before the opening Himanshu, Olie, Nash, Yumiko, Karin and others organized a game for all the kids in the Ambedkar Hall, 1 minute away from the Shelter.
