Thomas Hircock first visited India when he was 12 years old and joined his father on a business trip. He was shocked by the poverty and now he’s helping children of the ‘Untouchable’ caste by giving them bikes.
The youngsters wanted bikes so they could travel to school many miles away and lift themselves out of poverty.
The first year Thomas and his family raised money for eight bicycles. Today, the 16-year-old’s charity, called the Bike Club, has shipped a total of 400 bikes to schools in India.
