I went to Kolkata, West Bengal in January 2007 and January 2008. In the first trip I filmed 5 humanitarian aid projects funded by The Shadhika Foundation (http://www.shadhika.com), which focuses on the needs of women and children in the state of West Bengal. In 2008 I went back and filmed a full-length documentary on one of the projects I had seen in 2007. The videos in this channel are from the 2007 trip.
