@ VOL 30 ON JUN 13, 2016

My name is Kumar is the charity set up by Tim Loonen and his wife Renee Schreurs to support 37 former child beggars in Tamil Nadu, Southern India. Living between London and Chennai they offer a safe home, education and love to children born into poverty. Almost five years after they’ve first set foot in India the charity is thriving and about to double the number of kids they are able to send to school. However, it hasn’t been always easy. Tim will guide us through some of the tough choices they’ve had to make along the way and tell us about how he combines a full time job at the world’s largest travel site (TripAdvisor) with the exciting (and rewarding) world of philanthropy.
