Event description

Description

When I was in Darjeeling, in India i had an opportune meet with Michael Symons, a Northern Beaches resident and founder of the Cobra and Mongoose Charity Group. Through our conversation i learned about an education program that had been set up in the remote village of Kaikali, just an hour outside of Kolkata, where i was next to be travelling to, which had become a project of Michaels charity.

Visiting the village, and talking with Somnath, the man who started the program, was a truly humbling experience. Somnath, having been lucky enough to obtain a governmental education as a child, as well as a university degree and a well respected office job, quickly recognised the emptiness of this social aspiration tha...t all the children grow up yearning for. The children of his village, being of the lowest caste have little to no hope of ever achieving an education, despite their parents hard work and aspirations for their futures. So Somnath turned his house into a school and started offering free school to all the children of the village.

No, 100's of children recieve an education over a number of open air locations in the village and it contonues to grow and develop. Come along to my first ever photogprophy exhibition, where i will be displaying photos from my India Collection, including photos of the children from the village.

Invite your parents, invite your friends, the more the merrier :)

The event will be run as a SILENT AUCTION
