At Silent Images one of our oldest taglines is “give a voice to the voiceless.”
When we visited a school in India with hundreds of children laughing and playing and speaking to us all at once, it’s impossible imagine that in Indian society these children are rarely allowed to have a voice.
We were at a school for children of the Untouchables, a caste in India where the people are segregated from the rest of society, live in extreme poverty, and are offered very few opportunities to escape that poverty.
This discrimination is mostly seen in rural areas of India, which is why this school opened.
We witnessed these children receiving an amazing education, listened to them share their dreams of becoming doctors and lawyers, and we know the world is changing for the better.
Their stories are just beginning, but their voices are clamoring to be heard.
Now it is our responsibility to listen and to act.
