“United Way Bengaluru’s volunteer events are always good experiences as they are well planned, and provide opportunities 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 that volunteering leaves him feeling happy and satisfied about giving back to society. He tells a heart-warming tale – about the influence his commitment has had on his nine-year old son, Parth. Praveen reminisces that Parth accompanied him for the plantation drive at the Herohalli Lake in 2010. Parth was only five years old but he absolutely loved the experience and started accompanying him to all the events.
