Latika Roy Story: Photographic Exhibit by Ken Carl

Images will be displayed on fotoflōt and will be available for purchase as a fundraiser for the foundation.

Latika Roy Story: Photographic Exhibit by Ken Carl

Ken says:

This show is a sharing of a hope in humanity which overwhelmed me while documenting the Latika Roy Foundation in India. Latika Roy is not a quiet, or a calm place. It is frantic with creating joy: Joy of life through compassion, action, teaching, sharing and bonding. These children are handicapped, yet that fact is not a barrier to being a positive light in the family of man. The human spirit can never be handicapped.

Located in Dehardun, India, the Latika Roy Foundation provides therapy, education and vocational training for children and young adults with multiple disabilities. The creators and supporters of Latika Roy are heart-and-soul advocates for a just and inclusive world.

The Exhibition will run from Thursday May 9, 2013 until the end of May.
