This 21-year-old Hubbali student is a role-model

Just 21 years old, Vinayak Jogarishettar, a student of Kle Institute of Technology at Hubbali in Karnataka, has already founded an NGO working for the upliftment of schoolchildren and elderly security guards. Over 20 government schools have been either beautified or renovated by the young wizard.

It was 2016, and I was in Class XII. While surfing Net, I stumbled upon a random video on Facebook which left me shocked, disturbed and highly emotional. In the video, I saw a man eating his own human excreta, having run out of food. For a long time, that sight continued to play in my mind. Since the day that shocking incident happened, I always carry biscuits in my bag whenever I go to college.


In 2017, I started my own NG0 called Revolution Minds which is working in the field development and environment. Sadly, throughout my journey, many close friends, relatives, and some teachers tried to dissuade me from doing what I was doing. But I was determined. My NGO has already started feeding homeless people. Many of my friends joined me to fund the initiative and I am really grateful to them.

Today let me proudly say my NGO has 20+ members and we have done tremendous work in several areas. We have beautified and renovated more than 20 government schools. Besides, we take schoolchildren, who cannot afford outings, to museums and parks. The whole team aspires to make a child's education more important and impactful for the future.


We also have projects like Midnight Tea Party with security guards of Hubballi-Dharwad city. Most of the guards work 24×7 and they lead miserable lives, often ignoring their health. We plan to fix all the potholes on Hubbali-Dharwad, a stretch where accidents happen frequently.

I have plans to turn my NGO into a top startup that can create employment opportunities for youth. After five years, I like to see myself as an IAS officer and work towards the betterment of society.
