The 22-year old who travelled to Sri Lanka and India with aid workers from international charity group Oxfam, was pained to see the plight of children in the poverty-stricken school.

Johansson told that the time she spent with the kids at a Dalit school was the most cherishing part of her trip.

“The most gratifying opportunity was visiting a Dalit school. The Dalit community is considered the lowest status in the caste system, and children as young as four are working the fields,” Contactmusic quoted her, as telling the site.

With the actress’ donation, the school will be supported for the next three years. (ANI)
