Mr. Steve Holman, Managing Director of Opaltone Australasia, has donated six rickshaw bikes to 6 poor families in the remote Indian region of Vrindavan, changing their lives in a very positive way.

"I wanted to make a difference to the lives of families who have children at the Sandipani Muni school for the very poor, this is one of many schools run by Food for Life Vrindavan charity," Mr Holman said. "The recipients were chosen on the basis that they did this as a job, they were fathers of children attending the school and if more than six applicants, then those with the children who perform best in their school studies would fit the criteria to receive a bike.

"This is not the first time Opaltone has helped the poor of Vrindavan and certainly will not be the last." 

The Opaltone executive has been very generous in the past assisting the poor children with clothing and one poor boy with an urgent heart operation.

"Through this donation, the lives of six very poor families have changed for the better," Mr Prathia Prabhu, School Principal, said. "This is a life changing deed of kindness."

Opaltone recently appointed a distributor for India, Colour Dot with its head office in Chennai.

"Now that we will make money from the Indian market it is only fair that we give something back to those most in need," Mr Holman said. "I am a strong believer in Karma, I also have a connection with Vrindavan and the people of Food for Life Vrindavan. Their charity does great work for the poor people of the area providing schooling for children and a hospital for the sick who cannot afford treatment, it is a very worthwhile cause."

Opaltone hopes to do a lot more in the future, as the company grows so too will its commitment to those who need help the most.
