I recently became an active member of The Rahul Kotak Foundation after having volunteered for some workshops.
Being a part of this foundation has been the best experience of my life because it has taught me how to be empathetic, kind and helpful to those in need.
RKF is a platform dedicated to try make the world a better place and to simply improve lives, which, I believe is the most important and necessary objective, and I can say without a doubt that RKF is definitely doing justice to that motive.

RKF is made up of a team so passionate and enthusiastic, every opportunity I get to work with them is a blessing! They understand the core of the projects and are equally dedicated to the success of both short term, and long term projects. The progress made thus far is remarkable and it's only onwards and upwards from here!

The dedication the foundation has is just amazing! They are all very kind and welcoming. They put in so much effort to help out in areas the government doesn't. I was a volunteer and I have to say they did a very good job. Organised, Well managed and just connected with the kids. My experience with Rahul Kotak foundation has been phenomenal mostly with one of the founders Mansi, a very lovely being.
