Photos of a Girls' School, INDIA

Hi everyone,
I am an amateur photographer clicking people’s issues and development-related photos. I had, last month, shot photos of a girl’s school run by an Indian NGO called PPES.
I have uploaded those on this wonderful website called Photophilanthropy.

http://photophilanthropy.org/blogmedia/gallery-posts/educating-a-society/

I would be happy if you could take a look and send some feedback.
Regards
Rahul Kumar
