Each day, 200 poor families migrate from rural areas into Bangalore alone to try to find work. Some may find a construction job, but most will end up wandering the city begging and picking up garbage or ending up working in brutal conditions in quarries.
They live in dangerous environments (shanty towns or pitch tents) without clean water, sanitation, housing or electricity. They are often sick, most are illiterate and unskilled. Women and children are the most vulnerable and victims of poverty, exploitation and poor health. The future is grim for children without proper health care and education. But there is hope!
Rippled Purpose -- The Documentary
Video creates an emotional connection that can't be ignored. When we returned to India in February (2013), the Rippled Purpose team filmed human trafficking (child labor and bonded labor), the reality of life for quarry laborers, slum-dwellers, and at-risk women & children. We also captured the power of education in igniting change and providing hope!
Documentary Fundraising - We need your help to raise $19,500!
Our dedicated producer and cinematographer Joe Dickie and his team mate, Tony Rouillard took over 500 hours of incredible video in India, thanks to the incredible support of many of our friends. The heart and emotion shown in the videos we now have on RippledPurpose.com are beautiful and represent a project that was indeed blessed.
We need to hire an editor to put the story together. The money raised will pay for their filming and the editing. Once we have the documentary edited, we will take the story of our brothers and sisters in India to the world.
Human trafficking proliferates because of economic gains and lack of understanding. Poverty feeds this horrific suffering. Our documentary will bring a heartfelt connection to slavery and clarify why child labor does not benefit GDP or the survival of their families long-term. (read more here)
