Ambassadors of Hope
Ambassadors of Hope is a feature-length film documenting India’s child laborers. Children who bear the burden of torturous conditions in mines, factories or farms in order to support their families. Each morning, as dawn breaks, children emerge from tea stalls and roadside restaurants to start their day in servitude. Despite the nation’s “Right to Education Act”, the promise of free compulsory education remains an unrealized dream because India’s child laborers are the backbone of the economic engine that runs the country. Now, there may be hope in sight for these children because a new generation of empowered students, here in the cradle of technology, Silicon Valley, want to make that unrealized dream, a reality. Can these students change a legacy of torment and abuse?
