Four Australians Will Ride Across India To Help Poor Kidsby The Daily Eye Team March 9 2017, 3:53 pm Estimated Reading Time: 0 mins, 37 secs
When Cameron Perry first came to India in 2015, he came across several stories of underprivileged children lacking opportunities. One such story stuck with him. “I met a child working at a tea stall in Uttar Pradesh. He had a bright smile and spoke very good English. He had never been to school and said he is self-taught. He wanted to be a nurse but said there were not many opportunities available within his community,” said Perry, the 25-year-old Australian. The encounter made Mr Perry think about the potential the kids have and how lack of opportunities and awareness have forced them into child labour or kept them away from bearing the fruits of development in the country.
