Rishikesh is a college student and used to work with the NGO, The Akanksha Foundation, that empowers children from underserved communities through education. Rishikesh was introduced to Antarang Foundation through Akanksha about a year and a half ago. Through his time with Antarang, Rishikesh has learnt about the different challenges that youth in Bombay face. He says that at this point, he cannot imagine what his life would be like without Antarang.
Today, Rishikesh continues to be heavily involved with Antarang and helps raise student awareness and interest in our programs. In his free time he also helps out teachers in the various centres across the city. Rishikesh believes that Antarang has helped him value his job, interact with people, and discover the potential that each and everyone individual possesses. He believes that by continuing to work with students closely, Antarang can change the lives of many more young people.
