I want to live simply. I want to sit by the window when it rains and read books I’ll never be tested on. I want to paint because I want to, not because I’ve got something to prove. I want to listen to my body, fall asleep when the moon is high and wake up slowly, with no place to rush off to. I want not to be governed by money or clocks or any of the artificial restraints that humanity imposes on itself. I just want to be, boundless and infinite.

"ولما جت سيرتك
عينيه دمعت
أفتكرت صدقك
وحضنك وأمانك"

أفتكرت يوم لما ودعتك
ومن بعدها ودعتى الدنيا وسبتينى لوحدى

ولما جت سيرتك
أتمنيت لحظة واحدة اعشها معاكى

It is an unusual school in an unusual location and is run by an unusual teacher.

Rajesh Kumar is a shopkeeper by profession but spends hours every morning teaching around 80 children from the poorest of the poor in India’s capital.

The 43-year-old visited the construction of the Delhi transit station a few years ago and was disturbed by the sight of  many children playing at the site instead of attending school.

When he questioned the parents working at the sites they all said there were no schools in the vicinity and no one cared.

Consequently, his open-air class room was born - between pillars and beneath the tracks of the Delhi transit system, known as the Metro.

Every few minutes a train passes above, the children unperturbed by its sounds.

There are no chairs or tables and the children sit on rolls of polystyrene foam placed on the rubble.

Three rectangular patches of wall are painted black and used as a blackboard.

Anonymous donors have contributed cardigans, books, shoes and stationery for the children, as their parents cannot afford them.

One unnamed individual sends a bag full of biscuits and fruit juice for the pupils every day - another incentive for the children to turn up for their studies.

"Sometimes, I sit alone under
the stars
and think of the galaxies
inside my heart, and truly wonder if anyone will
ever want to make sense
of all that
I am."

Zed Nelson - Europe’s Immigration Disaster

***The film will be screened on Channel 4 in April, 2014***

On October 3rd last year a boat carrying over 500 migrants from North Africa capsized off the coast of the Italian Island of Lampedusa. 360 people drowned, many of them women and children. It was one of Europe’s worst maritime disasters since the Second World War.

This film (for Channel 4’s ‘Dispatches’) tells the inside story of the tragedy - through the testimony of survivors, and locals who were the first on the scene.

Award winning photographer Zed Nelson’s first film for Channel 4 follows the clandestine onward journey of the survivors as they navigate the illegal immigration route out of Italy into Northern Europe.

At the centre of the programme is the story of one remarkable young woman, one of only five women who survived.

Fanus, a teenager from Eritrea, tells Channel 4 Dispatches of the desire to escape a life of military servitude that motivated her flight from the country. She recounts the extraordinary hardship she suffered crossing Africa and how, unable to swim, she somehow survived for hours in the water after the boat went down.

Fanus is caught up as a witness in an extraordinary court case involving a man accused of her kidnap. She then escapes and goes to incredible lengths to circumvent the European asylum system in order to reach the country she dreams of living in.

A remarkable portrait of human determination, the programme raises questions about Europe’s immigration barriers and the lengths desperate refugees will go to in order to breach them.

Please watch this.
