4 Learning (Firm)
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Bangalore's booming IT business lures so many new professionals every year that a separate industry has sprung up to help them settle in. But Bangalore also has more than 1,000 slum areas, and that is where most newcomers, arriving from poverty-stricken rural villages, will end up. This program explains why so many of India's poor continue to migrate to cities like Bangalore, the challenges they face when they arrive, and what the slum-residents themselves are doing to improve their quality of life. Illiteracy, caste discrimination, and the role of grass-roots community groups are all examined.
