The I-India shower bus for the street children of Jaipur

This little jewel of a video perfectly expresses a truth few people understand: If you have never brought joy to a child in need, you have missed one of life's greatest opportunities for happiness. The shower bus visits each of I-India's School on Wheels street centres twice a week and provides the children there with an on-the spot shower.

The bus is a project of I-India ( which works with street children in Jaipur. The original video on YouTube is at :
