Inspired by the true story of Saroo Brierley, who at the age of 5 became separated from his family, taken into an orphanage after surviving for weeks on the streets, and ultimately adopted by a family in Australia as captured in the film Lion - PROJECT LION developed by UNICEF USA is designed to help support children without family care who are living in residential institutions in India. We have planned and designed the launch of PROJECT LION at the historic Highline Hotel in the heart of New York City with touches of Indian flair. This was a night to remember with emotional speeches, VIP guests and over a million dollars that were raised for such an important cause.
