Why my father is my hero !


My father has founded and funds an orphanage/ shelter for street boys in Nallasopara for the last 9 years. There are now over 45 kids - and 4 are ready to graduate, since they have completed their 10th Standard examinations. Not only has he constructed the building which houses them, he also takes care of their education !

Interventions in early childhood are the most cost-effective way to address societal inequalities while increasing overall economic output. My father inspires me to follow in his footsteps, which is why I am an angel investor and fund social impact startups.

    What your dad did is an act of absolute kindness and selflessness, he expected nothing in return - I guess he doesn't even blog ( brag ) about it, even if he blogs :) I don't think funding social impact start-ups can be compared with it. You won't fund a start-up, if you feel you won't be able to get appropriate returns, will you ? In our country, more than social impact start-ups what is necessary is, satisfying the basic needs of the needy - kudos to your papa !
