I could not believe that it has been 10 years. Yes, Team Everest was started in 2006.
I still remember those days. I’m fresh from college. I joined a corporate after getting placed through Campus placement. The date is Aug 21, 2006. After working for 10 days, on Aug 31, 2006 I got my first salary.
3 of my of friends and I decided to donate part of the salary for a social cause. We collected Rs 4000, purchased stationary items, uniforms and distributed it to students in a Government school in a small village. That was the first activity of Team Everest. There is no stopping after that!
It’s been 10 years now. 9500+ volunteers, 6 Cities touching the lives of thousands of students.
I got to meet many amazing individuals in this journey. ‘I’ became obsolete. Its about ‘WE’. Every stranger became a friend. The cause united us. Every time I see smile on a kid face, I always remember that this journey is worth having.
Thank you volunteers. You made this journey possible. Let’s keep it going. More kids are waiting for us.
Let’s give what we have. We are blessed. We are Volunteers!
