Olympic Torch

Bhasker with the Olympic Torch at the Giving World offices.

Staff and volunteers were thrilled to welcome International award winning BBC cameraman Bhasker Solanki to our offices, the day after he triumphantly carried the Olympic Torch through Leicester City.

Bhasker, who has risked his life to highlight the plight of many of the poorest people in the world, is a keen supporter of Giving World Online. He was here with his other hat on, as a Trustee of the Rushey Mead Foundation, donating unwanted educational books and materials for use in village schools in Ghana

In his illustrious career Bhasker has filmed the devastating plight of children in Eastern Europe, Africa and Asia which in many cases has led to Governments being forced to take positive action. In Albania, Bhasker's pictures showed the world the tragedy of disabled children living in degrading conditions. His work led to national newspaper campaigns and the president of the country honoured him with the nation`s highest civilian prize, the Mother Teresa Award.

Bhasker has also won awards from Amnesty International for his work in Rwanda and whilst filming the Bhuj earthquake in Gujarat in 2001, he was so shocked at the plight of the children that he raised thousands of pounds to set up a school in the earthquake hit area. He worked closely with the Rushey Mead School in Leicester, which he attended as a child, and now there is a Rushey Mead School in Bhuj, providing life changing opportunities for the poorest of the poor.

Bhasker works tirelessly for his local communities and we all felt privileged to have him here (and of course to hold the Olympic Torch)!
