I'm Rohit, a doctor who enjoys watching football when not busy in the Operating Theater!
As a part of my job, I often come across children from not so privileged backgrounds and witness the struggles they face. I strongly believe that education is the great equalizer that can help bring about social change and help students succeed. Please join me as I raise funds for this innovative educational project by Apni Shala Foundation. Here's the video that inspired me to become Secret Santa for them:

Did you like what you just saw? Here's why I urge you to become Secret Santa for this cause.

I believe that a programme like this could turn children into reflective, conscientious citizens and changemakers in our society. And Apni Shala Foundation designs and delivers such programmes for children from low-income communities every day of the year in Mumbai. This year, they're taking this to 200 children who have resolved to address 40 social issues ranging from community violence, alcoholism and addiction, right up to waste management. They will be putting in an entire year of effort to identify, investigate and try and resolve these local problems. And they need our help.

As official Secret Santa for Apni Shala, I'm looking to raise an amount that will help empower 10 children by enrolling them in this programme. If you want to offer these children an education you've always wanted for yourself, become a Secret Santa this Christmas!

All you need to do is click 'Donate' on this page and contribute a small amount to help me reach my goal. 

What happens after you donate?

You'll thereafter be informed about how you helped made a difference. 

  • You get the chance to interact with the children you supported and accompany them during their projects
