Many remote areas of India’s North East are characterized by indigent poverty. Parents, many from a hunter-gatherer background struggle to make ends meet and earn enough to send their children to school. In spite of their tremendous difficulties and hand-to-mouth existence, most remain cheerful and determined to educate their children on a whatever-it-takes basis. Ryan Lobo, Sunbird Trust Trustee and an international photographer of repute, captured pictures of some of the parents of sponsored children of Sunbird Trust during a visit to Manipur in October 2015 with his wife Ira.
