Though he left India soon after, what he did is absolutely remarkable! Dick called up his friends Chris Bray and Jess Bray and asked if they were willing to help and sponsor the girl’s education. When they agreed the star-couple came down to India in search of the little girl.

Jayati, the receptionist girl from their hotel in Vadodara acted as their English-Hindi translator and helped the couple settle-in.

The Bray family visited Divya’ school and promised to come back with a sizeable donation for them.

 ‘We also put a clause in the bank account contract saying if she doesn’t attend regularly then the funding can stop (more an an incentive for the parents to encourage her to go to school). They were happy with this.’ Chris posted.

Divya’s future is changing! So is India! This is purely heart-warming indeed. We hope that his story inspired you to do something similar.
