9_is_mine_group INDIA

A 300 km cycle rally from Chandigarh to New Delhi was part of a wider ‘Nine is Mine’ campaign launched in India in 2006 petitioning the Indian government to commit 9% of its GDP to public expenditure on Health and Education.

The idea of the cycle rally originated with students from the Brothers’ St. John’s High School. The rally grew to include other children from the slums of Chandigarh and its suburbs so that the participants themselves represent the voice of other vulnerable children on the margins of Indian society.
