Rajesh Kumar Sharma (born 01/02/1970), started this makeshift school in 2011. Six mornings a week he teaches underprivileged children for three hours while his younger brother replaces him at his general store in Shakarpur. His students are children of labourers, rickshaw-pullers and farm workers. This is the 3rd site he has used to teach under privileged children in the city, he began in 1997.
