Krishna Kumar Suresh

The Tamil word “Thuvakkam” which means a beginning is also the name of Krishna Kumar’s NGO and rightly describes his journey in the field of social work and volunteering. A venture of six of his peers and himself, his organisation has become an inspiration for the ones in his surroundings. Krishna Kumar and his organisation works for the environment and towards imparting education.

They carry out tree plantation and believe that making a green environment is not an option but the only way the human race can survive on our planet. He has modified Miyawaki Afforestation according to local needs and carried out Rainwater harvesting under the mentorship of Dr. Sekhar Raghavan -the Rain Man.

They have supported the education expenses of many students by pooling resources from donors. Apart from this, he has worked during the Kerala floods and Nagapattinam cycle.

Zealous about work, they have revamped many public places, schools and orphanages with the support of more than 11,000 volunteers, thus helping more than 50,000 people.

Khaalid Ahamed

A student of St. Peter’s University, Khaalid completed his education with a B.E. Mechanical Engineering degree. One fine evening, he was on the road with a few of his friends when he saw an old man yearning for water. They quickly offered help to improve his condition.

The old man told them that all he needed was four people to stand in his last rites and bury him in a proper way. This incident changed his life.

Khaalid says that there are many homeless people who die alone and do not have anyone to claim their corpses, so he decided to start an NGO called the Uravugal Trust which provides dignified burials to unclaimed bodies.

Apart from this, they also rescue homeless people and provide them with shelter in old age homes.

Rumi Kumari

A survivor of trafficking, Rumi Kumari has been an inspiration for the girls around her. Tangled in poverty, she was sent to work at the young age of 9 at different locations. Even though she was subject to immense physical torture, she managed to free herself and enrolled herself in school. Her troubles did not end here and she was made to marry at 14.

However, as she received training on Life Skills Education by Save the Children, she managed to gather strength and raise voice against the decision of her parents. Presently, she is pursuing her under graduation from Ranchi and dreams of being a Police Officer one day and eradicate evils like trafficking. An Ashoka Youth Fellow, Rumi is working for the prevention of child marriage and promotion of education of the girls in her community.

She has personally been able to curb 15 child marriages. She is relentlessly sensitizing her community, regarding the ill effects of child marriage. She has remained the lead voice of Save the Children in Jharkhand during their “Vote for Children” campaign. She insisted the Chief Minister of Jharkhand to form Child Protection Committees and functionalized one in her village. Praised by many eminent ministers of Jharkhand, her struggle would be penned down by the author, Ms. Rashmi Bansal.
