India art exhibition showcase painting by vulnerable children

Art provides an escape for the children who have escaped abuse, lived on the streets, been trafficked or forced to work.

    An art exhibition has opened in India's capital, New Delhi, showcasing work by underprivileged children.

    Some were trafficked or rescued from the streets, and are now learning new skills for the future.

    The project is teaching them how to paint and develop other skills as well.

    Al Jazeera's Alexi O'Brien reports.
