Born and raised in Australia, Kenneth has been a successful private chef for over a decade. He is also a motorcycle enthusiast and an avid traveler. In May 2012, Kenneth rode his Royal Enfield motorcycle from Delhi to Kolkata in an effort to create awareness and support for families living in poverty across India. 100% of the funds he raised on his 5,500 mile adventure went directly towards the work of CSS, endPoverty's partner in Kolkata, helping thousands of poor entrepreneurs start their own small businesses.
“I was born in Australia, received a great education and the opportunity to choose a career of my choice. A large majority of the people of India are not as fortunate. I learned that most people in rural India live on less than a dollar a day. Imagine trying and raise a family on such a small amount of money. This usually means that education is not a priority and many of the children are left to beg in the streets. As these children grow into adulthood, with no education…they have very limited job opportunities. It is a vicious cycle, one that is hard to break.”
"I have dreamt of making this trip across India for many years. I decided to look for a way to fulfill my dream and also make a difference in the lives of the people of India. I did some research, made a few phone calls, connected with endPoverty.org and started my journey to make a difference. The organization is impacting the lives of people living in poverty across the globe. I decided to help promote their organization and the great work they are doing in India as I ride across the country."
