Alumni students – ‘Ride for Rights – An Indian Odyssey’

Alumni students – ‘Ride for Rights – An Indian Odyssey’
March 27, 2017 Oakhill News

In February, an amazing journey began for Children‘s Rights in India. Oakhill alumni Scott Grills and Taylor Hogan from the Class of 2009, along with two mates, started a 45-day, 7000km motorcycle trek across India. The bikers collaborated with the Indian NGO Child Rights and You (CRY), which works for children’s rights in India with their dream project ‘Ride for Rights – An Indian Odyssey’. They are filming a documentary on the challenges faced by children in India to create mass awareness about the issue and to capture stories of hope and change, and in the process, raise funds for their cause. Scott Grills said it was about bringing hope to the children they met. “We want to raise awareness but we also want to inspire other people to step out of their comfort zone,” he said. Congratulations to our Oakhill Graduates Scott and Taylor for continuing to live out our Lasallian core value of ‘Concern for the Poor and Social Justice’.
