The software engineer aims to sensitise generation next on the critical issue of poverty and lack of access for poor families to education, jobs, health and housing, by undertaking the tour, that spans 17 States.

He has joined hands with the NGO Action-Aid to highlight the issue of poverty and struggle of communities living with it.

During the 9,500 km bike ride, Prabhu is expected to meet HIV positive single mothers, HIV positive children, urban poor, railway kids, orphans and women fighting for land and livelihood.

"This trip will allow me to be a part of the change, but also inform others on how much work still needs to be done", Prabhu said.
