Philanthropy to next generation's philosophy

Reflecting on her philanthropic journey, Devna Jain shares insights into her impactful CSR initiatives with BizAcuity.

As a 14-year-old who had the privilege of working with BizAcuity‘s CSR initiatives like the Assam flood relief initiative, I learned that impactful contributions can stem from any background of work and education, including the technical industry.

Being involved for almost a year now, I have leaped to speak from the perspective of the younger generation. The skill and determination inspire me and the flexibility to lend a helping hand knows no bounds, and sustainability is woven into every aspect whether it’s in technology, hospitality, or data analytics.

Reflecting on our social actions at BizAcuity, like the Goonj Donation Drive for the annual floods in Assam, was a compassionate step toward humanity. The impact of our efforts in a city 2,500 miles away brought a heartwarming sense of fulfillment amid the devastating floods in Assam.

Our association with the Goonj Foundation exemplified the importance of collaboration and portrayed cross-sectoral cooperation in driving meaningful change. By joining forces with a well-established NGO like Goonj, we were able to combine our respective strengths and resources to amplify the impact of our collective efforts.

For me, being a part of this donation drive was more than just a week-long project. It was an opportunity to contribute to something bigger than myself, to be a part of a movement that transcends age and background. The journey held more value, from planning, scheduling, and requesting to thanking the employees- these steps played an integral part in developing my empathetic self as a learning individual.

Through initiatives like these, young people like us gain the opportunity to amplify our voices and take meaningful action. It is a reminder that no matter how young we are, we foster the power to create positive change and leave a lasting impact on the world, connecting different communities and building an inclusive society.

Ultimately, this experience displayed how no matter where we come from or what industry we work in, we all have a role to play in creating a better world.
