As an Executive Member of the AlphaUrbane Project Team, our primary objective is to equip adolescents with the skills essential to tackle adversity and embrace opportunities that the 21st century has to offer. By instilling these skills, we seek to enrich personalities with confidence, and broaden horizons. We streamline the process of guiding young minds to think like members of the booming corporate, and international communities. This is done as the eventual step out of academics and into the real world depends heavily on one’s repertoire of soft skills. The development of these skills is a crucial preparatory step for aspiring game-changers.
We at TAUP, contribute to the socio-economic development of the communities in which we operate, which is why a part of all our proceeds are donated towards charitable causes. We also work with non-governmental organisations to provide soft skill training, leadership and impart public speaking skills to the less fortunate. In 2020, we worked with Goonj and The Akshay Patra foundation to raise over 2 crores rupees (USD 275,000) for feeding India’s suffering Daily Wage Workers during COVID-19. We had recruited over 100 students around the city, creating a state-wide movement.
In 2020, I founded OneHuman: a crowdfunding platform that works with Deepalaya, Goonj, The Smile Foundation, The Uddhav Foundation, GivingIndia and the Daga Foundation. My main goal for this organization was to help the daily wage workers in my country. But when I tried looking for donations, most people didn’t trust the process of donating in India due to the lack of transparency. This organization works to connect NGOs to donors and show donors the impacts they’ve made through pictures and videos.The initiative was a huge success. Alongside my brother and friends, we raised over 10,000$ in one week for the daily wage during COVID-19.
Birsa Munda High School for Orphans
Birsa Munda High School, Beradih was established in 1997 and is managed by the Pvt. Unaided. It is located in the Namkum block of the Ranchi district of Jharkhand: a rural city. The school consists of Grades from 1 to 8 and is Co-educational. It is home to orphans and abuse victims. My role was to teach the students how to play Football. My friends taught them other activities like singing, dance and badminton. All sessions were conducted in Hindi and Marathi only. I worked with them for 6 months on Thursdays and Fridays. In May 2021, they went on to win their District Level Football Competition. I don’t think I’ve ever been this touched by a group of people.
