Ankit Kawatra, Founder-Feeding IndiaPreviously an associate with CEB, handicraft exports and Grand Thornton India, Mr. Ankit Kawatra, an enterprising young 24 year old was always compassionate for the dejected which is evident from his former presidentship of Rotaract Club (district 4010), pioneering the concept of organizing annual clothing drive campaigns or his constant association with anti ragging and anti drug campaigns. However, Ankit, now a leading light in the social world, turned into a full time philanthropist with his one of a kind initiative, FEEDING INDIA, which aims to connect two major social challenges: Hunger and Food wastage as solutions for each other. This is done by channelizing excess nutritious food from hotels, restaurants, weddings, etc. to the people who really need it. Not many 24 year olds, have given up the luxuries of a management graduate to off-road into a territory that is full of uncertainty. Ankit’s idea just goes to prove that sometimes, the answer to a problem lies within the problem itself, all we need to do is, to look closer.
