Mobile school helps Mumbai homeless

Al Jazeera follows Rehana, a child living with her family on the streets of Mumbai.

    The United Nations estimates that there are at least 140 million children living on less than a dollar a day in India, a large proportion of them on the streets of India's major cities.

    While education can be a way out of poverty, the United Nations Children's Fund believes that only about 60 per cent of children get the most basic primary schooling.

    Al Jazeera's Casey Kauffman travelled to Mumbai to meet one of the city's thousands of street children.
