Where we work

New Delhi is a giant sprawling metropolis with plenty of examples of poverty and hardship. According to India’s 2011 census, the National Capitol Territory of Delhi has 16,787,941 residents of which 3.9 million live in the slums. Independent reports put this number closer to 8 million. Thirty-two percent of India’s urban population lives in one room housing. In New Delhi, where a dilapidated one room apartment can cost $75 a month or more, many of the poor are homeless or sleep in parking lots where they receive a blanket for about 30 rupees a night. Assuming they also spend to eat, even those who are reduced to sleeping on pavement would not qualify as poor per India’s Planning Commission’s definition.

Much of the city’s workforce makes $100 a month or less and lack access to decent housing, education, and even access to plumbing or clean water. Though New Delhi boasts the country’s highest literacy rate of 86 percent, 70 percent of the illiterate live in the slums. The city faces a daily water shortage of 207 million gallons from government-run water treatment plants. Some 4 million people lack access to piped in water and survive off rationed, tank water. Because of inadequate plumbing, many are forced to defecate in public at railways. Access to transportation and the internet is sparse as well but less of a concern for New Delhi’s many poor.

In the heavily crowded North East district, also home to many slums, 3.2 million people live at an astounding population density of 37,346 people per sq km. That’s more than ten thousand people denser than Manhattan, the most tightly packed county in America.
