A road trip to change lives for the better in India
Aussie friends are hoping to film a documentary and spread awareness about children’s rights
GURGAON, India — We’ve all heard of motorbike road trips, but four Australian bikers are doing so much more, reports Hindustan Times.
Cameron Perry, Scott Grills, Ben Butcher and Taylor Hogan are trekking 7,000 km across India on a 45-day trip to raise awareness and produce a documentary about the challenges children living in India face.
The friends have teamed with local charity, CRY – Child Rights and You and will visit communities to capture stories that will eventually raise money for their cause. “We wanted to take up a project that would bring about a lasting change in the lives of children. So we decided to take up a project on a larger scale,” Perry said of the trip. [hindustantimes.com]
