Watch the PBS Documentary

India is home to nearly half a billion children, many of whom live in extreme poverty. The Indian Government has not been able to find a way to educate these children, who spend their days begging, stealing and selling their bodies just to survive.

This documentary film on “The Train Platform Schools of India” was aired by PBS as part of their TV series, “The New Heroes”.

It is hosted by Robert Redford, and tells the inspiring story of the men and women with a passion for working to transform society by overcoming the challenges of poverty, illness, abuse, violence and the ignorance they see in the world around them.
