John Devaraj~An amazing Indian by Times Now

John Devaraj, Founder, Born Free Art School in BangaloreVideo Link:

There are 217 million working children in the world, 134 million of which live and word in India.

The Bornfree Art School is a special school created exclusively for street,
working children and freed bonded labor children. The objective is to educate
and develop these children through the arts, putting them back into the main
stream of education.

Children learn sculpture, painting, dance, music,
theater, photography and filmmaking along with reading, writing, and mathematics.
Education through entertainment and the sharing of knowledge are the core
aspects of learning.

Art is a therapeutic means for children from such difficult
backgrounds to express themselves freely, regain the confidence and self
respect as well as to generate interest in education.
