The Rise of Youngistaan Foundation
Started by 30-year-old Arun as a small initiative in 2012, Youngistaan Foundation initially focused on feeding the homeless in Hyderabad, on weekends.
The Feeding ProjectInitially, Arun along with his team of ‘hunger heroes’ would pool in money from their income and feed the homeless every Saturday and Sunday. Gradually, they decided to expand their social work and move to different regions.
“We get the food packets at discounted rates. From cutting vegetables and cooking food to packing and distribution, we do it all,” says Arun.
What’s more? They literally transform them.Through their ‘Transformers’ project, they approach the homeless who do not have access to proper hygiene and give them a complete makeover.
Undoubtedly, It Is No Piece of Cake. They Have Had Their Share of Obstacles.
A Bright Future“Finding committed volunteers is an even bigger challenge than getting investment,” says Arun.
