Shruthi T Shivshankar

I am Shruthi Shivashankar Murthy, working towards impacting rural education using technology. Being a nature admirer and traveller, I have discovered that cycling is one of the best ways to explore the world and explore myself.

Thus, started the journey with GMC 2013 which was my first cycling expedition. Cycling through the serene mountains of malnad made me connect to myself. Today, I am privileged to be riding for a cause in GMC 2016.

Child labour is a big social issue and of great concern today in our country. Being in child education space for 2 years and working with tribal kids of Rajasthan has helped me realize the gravity of the problem.

Every small step taken against child labour counts. I will be supporting and raising funds through my ride for Sandeep Seva Nilayam, an NGO which works for Child rights, Child Labour - Education and Rehabilitation, women empowerment and also eradicating leprosy. Looking forward to a great journey. Hope to make every pedal count.
