One third of the world′s poor are in India. The streets of Kolkata in West Bengal are a place of refuge and a place of danger where street children live, eat, play, sleep and work. There are thousands of unreached, vulnerable and disadvantaged children who work in hazardous and dangerous conditions, from construction workers to rag pickers, forced by poverty, and by exploitative adults into the sex industry, while others turn to petty theft or join gangs for self-protection. Some children choose to live on the streets as an alternative to poverty or violence at home, often falling prey to sexual and financial exploitation. There are thousands of children who are still unreached and at high risk who also have the right to be properly cared for and protected.
VITAL aims to provide basic life necessities to disadvantaged and vulnerable children who suffer from the oppression and injustice of absolute poverty. VITAL supports projects which ensure thousands of children living in extreme poverty gain access to emergency shelter, quality education, healthcare, nutrition, clean water and other emergency and protective services.

Vital is a charity that has very limited resources but is doing great work with children in India. Some of their programs include working with children in the red light district and children living on railways. We put this video together using existing photography and video the charity had but did not know what to with.
Example: One25 had limited funds but wanted a video about Naomi House, a home dedicated to the support and education for women working the streets who have young children. The production took one day to photograph and conduct interviews and two days to edit and clearly documents the importance and impact of Naomi House on these women.
Example: Positive East wanted a to document the story of Paul and how they had help him deal with HIV. The video documents his story using just photographs and an interview with him.

The evening consists of photography and multimedia screenings at the beginning, followed by photographers breaking off into smaller groups, sharing and giving feedback on each others work. Its a night for photographers to get a fresh perspective on their projects, talk about ideas and work through problems they are having and to generally network with other photographers.
