UPDATE: 2/23/11 for those asking about giving, Link here http://www.tibetanphotoproject.com/SuRaj_beyond_Slumdog_Millioniare.html
Please read this whole notice on this video – To those asking about sponsoring Raj: We filmed this on our visit in Jan. 2010.
We are currently working with out contacts to locate him and also determine a proper NGO working in the region to handle your support.
We are happy to go back on your behalf if you want to sponsor the trip. Serious inquiries for any part of this effort can be emailed to us directly with INDIA in your subject line. email@example.com
In India, between 17 million and 60 million children survive alone on India’s urban streets.
While we were having a chai on the roof at a Tibetan restaurant in Mcleod Ganj, 11-year old Raj walked up to us with an outstretched hand and introduced himself.
We listened to his story for a while and asked if we could interview him so others could hear it.
This amazing young man of the streets speaks 4 languages and is brilliant well beyond his years.
You will hear in this video both hope and you will hear that there is no hope.
