Founders – Rohan Kathuria and Shiv Chadha In the summer of 2019, we, two high school students from New Delhi, India, founded our initiative eCycle in an attempt to help our community and make the lives of those around us better. eCycle is an initiative in which we go across communities in New Delhi and collect electronic waste from households that want to make a change to this harmful environment. This electronic waste includes anything from laptops to chargers to phones.
At eCycle, we have now collected over five hundred kilograms of electronic waste and have helped create a better environment for over 10,000 people. Our goal at eCycle is not only to collect and safely deposit E-Waste but also to raise awareness about the harms of E-Waste and how it needs to be segregated.

C.H.A.M.P. (Children’s Health Action Management Project) is aimed at addressing the status of healthcare for children in urban India. The first phase of the project consisted of spreading awareness and fostering a greater understanding of medical needs and necessities in communities of Delhi-NCR. We achieved this by executing workshops with a curriculum targeting low-income communities with little to no access to health education and facilities. Our first community partner has been ActionAid, an NGO dedicated to aiming to improve wellbeing in underserved communities. We have so far conducted nine sessions on different aspects of personal hygiene from August 2019 – Jan 2020.
The second phase was a crowdfunding campaign initiated in May 2020. The aim of the campaign was to raise funds to tackle healthcare issues for children studying at Kamala Rani Sanghi School (KRSS) located 30 km on the outskirts of Hyderabad at Sanghi Nagar, Telangana. It caters to more than 800 children of workers, laborers, and other low-income families from the surrounding areas. Our aim of the campaign was to raise INR 2,50,000 and we are delighted to inform you that we surpassed our goal in 20 days with 39 contributors.
We plan to utilize these funds by setting up annual health checkup camps for all students & staff and help schools take up necessary measures in these unusual times of pandemic Covid-19. Due to India hitting the second phase of covid-19 in March 2021, we were unable to conduct these health checkup camps and therefore are making use of some of the funds to create basic health kits that would be distributed to the children at KRSS. Additionally, we are working on creating a Student Health Manual for schools and an App that can digitally store all Medical records of children.
