There are millions of children of primary-school age in India who don’t attend school. For some, school is too far away, others have to work at home and some can’t afford to go.

But one man in the capital Delhi has been teaching any children who show up, and preparing them for state exams.

Now other volunteers have started joining him to teach as well.

Correspondent Ahmer Khan has been to visit his school.
