A 17-year old passionate and persistent Thimma Reddy is quickly emerging as a role model for children in Manvi, Raichur. Together with the other members from their Children’s Collective, he goes to the Panchayat, gets information from them, and passes it on to the others in the Collective.
When questioned by his mother on why he engages with the community and stakeholders rather than taking up a part time job and adding to the family income, he tells her how he likes helping the children in his community and wants to see them become successful in life. Thimma Reddy explains why he wants to do what he does, “We are taking our own rights, what is rightfully ours, not grabbing that of others”.
