‘Naughty’ Naina

Naina has been with the Aasraa Trust for over three years. She is now 6. She’s been finger painting with us since she was two and a half! She is tiny, adorable and knows she can twist any of us around her little finger. She is also very independent.

Naina has two sisters and a brother. Although from a traditional family where a male child is required, hence three girls and then a boy, her father, Raju, is progressive.

All three girls attend school and Wings. Her mother is illiterate and determined none of her children will be so.

Both her parents now play an active role in their river bed community and were essential in helping us establish a rapport with the Bindal slum dwellers.
