In the chaos of Kolkata’s Howrah train station David Earp’s life changed forever. Deeply moved by the plight of children with disabilities who had been orphaned or abandoned —living on the streets and seeking refuge in the station, begging for scraps of food, or finding their way to local institutions that were not equipped to properly care for them—David resolved to provide a home for children who need care for a lifetime. This home is called Shuktara – star of happiness.
