I am Karthee Vidya and I love Volunteering. Having studied in both rural and urban school, the difference in quality of education made me to start a non-profit organization called ‘Team Everest’ in 2006 when I finished my engineering and joined an IT Job.

After 8 years of working in the IT sector, I quit my well-paying job on December 31, 2014 to work full time in social sector to promote Volunteering in India. Building a team of 15,000 volunteers, working with 50+ corporates, I spend all my time to promote volunteering.

For the past 5 years, I'm not taking any salary and working as a volunteer to promote volunteering in our country and to provide quality education to children who couldn't afford it. Check out my giving journey here.

My wife who was working in Cognizant and later in Philips has also quit her job and joined Team Everest full time. Our current family income is 25% of what we use to earn in 2015. My savings helped me for the past 5 years and I will exhaust them in 2020.

Though I don't charge any of our beneficiaries, this world still charges me for all my expenses :)

The only way I can continue to survive in this world is to earn some money while doing my social work.

I have a dream where every Indian volunteer at least once a month. And, I will continue to chase that dream to help more children.
