Payal Mujumdar

I am Payal Mujumdar, a Computer Engineer (June 2014) from Pune. I have worked as a System Engineer in Infosys for 1.5 yrs followed by job as a Physics lecturer for 1 yr & currently preparing for Civil Services exam.

Since last 10.5 years, I am working as Founder-Director of an NGO named Approach Helping Hands Foundation in Pune, which is a strong youth based social organisation with 70+ volunteers.
Work of Approach is divided into 3 parts: Financial Donations, Activities and Social Awareness using Digital media.

Funds are collected through pocket money of volunteers & utilised for genuine needy cases. Until now, we have extended help up to 117 cases across Maharashtra, making a total of approx 2.25 lac INR. Also we have financially adopted two kids.

Various domains of activities are environment conservation, Education & health issues of under privileged kids, Women Empowerment & Digital Kranti.

Also we assertively promote the use of Facebook & WhatsApp for social work & conduct various successful drives using the same.

I believe in the principle of “United we stand, divided we fall” & thus envisage driving Approach Foundation successfully with a motto of “Together We Can!” even in future.
