Belgaum LEADer Feeds 1000 Needy People

Posted on Saturday, February 15, 2014 by LEAD

Pooja Karjol, a LEADer from Jain College of Engineering, Belgaum, was saddened by the large amount of hungry people she saw wandering the streets.  In addition, she felt angered by the enormous amount of food she would see being wasted whenever she ate at canteens or hotels.  She realized that if she could connect the wasted food with the hungry people, she could help provide a solution for this problem.  She collaborated with local canteens, hotels, and messes to collect their leftover, uneaten food.  For several months, she has been distributing this food to 1000 beggars and needy people.  Pooja's initiative of connecting two problems to create a solution inspired her peers and the local community.  Two students of her college were so moved by her project that they decided to join LEAD themselves so that they could make a difference in their respective communities.
