Star Volunteer

Vanshika Gupta, her timeless effort for USK Foundation certainly requires a great Salute. …  

She is one of the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect her passion, compassion, selfless caring, patience and her biography of souls that run deep as ever.

As a student of Symbiosis International School, Vanshika Gupta has been working with us since 2014, when she first approached us as a volunteer. What started out as a intermittent helping hand at our events, soon became a regular presence we learnt to reply on for assistance and support. Having closely interacted with the recipients of our welfare work, mostly underprivileged girls, she realised the dire need for awareness, which was imperative in keeping the young girls safe from the different kinds of abuse, which entailed creating a handbook for the children, which would enlighten them in simple, but effective ways. “The Good Touch, Bad Touch handbook, designed by her for the girl child has revealed much that was disturbing and yet there was some solace in being aware that this would equip the girl child to protect themselves henceforth.”

Thank you Vaishakha for being such an intergral part of USK Foundation.
