India - Magic Bus

Dharavi slums, Mumbai, India in partnership with “Magic Bus” and ambassador actress Freida Pinto

Hasanti, age 10 - Mumbai, India

‘‘I really like to run. Now, I have my own shoes, I can run really fast, and sometimes I run faster than the boys. I also like the pink color on my shoes!’’

Hasanti lives in a slum, and has never owned a pair of sneakers. Like most children in the slums, they walk barefoot, where they can easily hurt themselves and are susceptible to foot diseases. With shoes, Hasanti can run and play without worry.
