Volunteer speak

“United Way Bengaluru’s volunteer events are always a fantastic experience as they are well planned, and provide a great opportunity to spend time on meaningful activities which help make an impact.”Praveen Kulkarni, volunteer
Praveen works with a large multinational in the city and started volunteering with United Way at a ‘Wake the Lake’ event in 2010. He reiterates how volunteering leaves him feeling happy and satisfied at giving back to society/ nature.
He tells a heartwarming tale – about the influence his commitment has had on his nine-year old son, Parth.
Praveen reminisces how he brought his son along for the plantation drive at the Herohalli Lake in 2010, for the very first time, to help him experience the importance of respecting and protecting nature. Parth was only five years old. He recollects how his little son absolutely loved the experience and started accompanying him to all the events.
Praveen says, “I learnt this from a colleague, who once mentioned that it is equally important to get the next generation ready to think green. It is never too late to embed this into their character and make them conscious citizens. Even better if we get them young. I just loved the thought and started working on it.”
Parth is now nine years old and ‘think green’ is an idea close to his heart!
Stories like Praveen’s keep us going. As a mainly volunteer-led movement, we consider people to be the backbone of our organization.
