About Us

Do SlumThing was initially created to help the efforts of Shahadat Ali to educate and support children living in the slums of Jaipur, India.

For more than a decade Shahadat has been a full-time yet unpaid teacher and surrogate parent to literally hundreds of impoverished slum dwellers. He divides his time between two or more locations - Parva School situated atop a rubbish tip to the north of the city and latterly the grandly titled Zindagi Foundation which currently has no premises beyond a store room in a neighbour’s house.
