A great way to give back from a very cool kid

December 18, 2008

(Hat tip to SAJA Forum)

Budding philanthropist Akash Mehta is seeking your support for Sambhavna, an NGO that helps victims of the Bhopal disaster in India. Akash founded Kids for a Better Future and has organized a campaign to raise funds for various causes for the past three years, including to build a girls’ school in Afghanistan and to help child soldiers in the Congo. Check it out and give your support!

(As SAJA Forum points out, Akash’s folks are familiar South Asian Americans as well – his mom, Sunita Viswanath, is co-founder of Women for Afghan Women and former board member of Sakhi, and his dad, Suketu Mehta, is the well-known author of one of my favorite books, Maximum City.)
