VIDEO: Witness India’s desire for education in just four minutes

Recently, I flew to Calcutta, India with an award-winning crew of filmmakers to document the compelling story of Project Rhino, an organization that is providing free education to children in Calcutta’s slums and villages. Our mission? Capture their story in four minutes.

Our work resulted in the inspiring, true story of Arjun. He is the first member of his family to attend school. Did I mention if I were 10 again, I would be in love? This sweet boy with a beaming smile completely stole my heart, and his story truly illustrates the desire for education in India.

In India, more than 5.5 million school-age children are denied the chance to go to school. But world leaders are working together to ensure that by 2015, boys and girls worldwide will be able to complete a full course of primary schooling. I dare you to watch this video and join us to fight for the dignity and equality of the most vulnerable children of Calcutta, India and their future.
