Daughters of Destiny (Netflix)


Daughters of Destiny (Netflix) – Premieres 28th July

Documentary that focuses on five girls who are in Shanti Bhavan boarding school, a place founded by businessman Abraham George where all the students are classified as untouchables by the Indian caste system.

As untouchables the kids are deemed to be worthless and would normally grow up in poverty and be given the most basic of jobs. The school takes in the children when they are four years old and looks after them until their first day of work, where the plan is for them to break the caste system and help get their families out of poverty.

While it’s not the most easy going of documentaries it’s a fascinating watch.
