Indian newspaper created and run by street children

Indian street kids are putting out their own newspaper to raise awareness of the injustices they face every day.

Balaknama means "the voice of the children" and it really is - some of the reporters are as young as seven, while the editor is only 16.

Children who live and work on the streets are a common sight across India. They might look happy, but most have a horrific story to tell.
