Introducing the youngest donor in the AIM for Seva eco system. During the prolonged lockdown, 12-year-old Kaahinee Agarwal from Bangalore decided to bake for charity. Sensitive to the difficulties faced by the migrant force and the other less advantaged during the lockdown, Kahinee decided to put her skills to good use during this period. Some of proceeds raised from the bake sale were utilised towards buying masks for the girls, cooks, wardens and coordinators at the Swami Dayananda AIM for Seva Chatralayam for Girls, Yelahanka, Karnataka, and the Smt. Sowmya Kesanupalli AIM for Seva Chatralayam for Girls, Bagepalli, Bidar, Karnataka.
Till date, Kaahinee has donated 50 masks to the Yelahanka hostel and 36 masks to the Bagepalli Chatralayam.
Kaahinee came to know about AIM for Seva when she visited the Swami Dayananda AIM for Seva Chatralayam for Girls, Yelahanka, Karnataka, two years ago as part of a YPONext Gen (Young Presidents’ Organization) delegation. The YPO is a global leadership community of more than 29,000 chief executives in 130 countries who are driven by the belief that the world needs better leaders.
“Not only is Kaahinee very enterprising but she also has a strong sense of social consciousness. As the lockdown got extended, schools got closed indefinitely and the migrant workforce trekked back home, Kaahinee decided to make good use of the time and got into the baking mode. She promptly shared the menu on Google Docs with all the residents in her society. As everyone was locked up at home, there were lot of takers for her goodies and everyone looked forward to her baked treats,” says Aruna Madnani, Lead, Team Bangalore, AIM for Seva.
Thank you Kaahinee.
