Sandals belonging to elementary-aged students sit just outside a classroom in a slum area in New Delhi. The school, a former Compassion International site, was shut down by the Indian government in 2017, leaving many students and orphans in the area without access to education and resources. Former Indian Christian staff members continue to teach the children, with little to no payment. Photo: John Fredricks
