Janhavi Vartak from Pune, India
She is currently a student at Stanford University, California.
Project Dosti, the student-run initiative that connected Janhavi to Aarti Home, was a way for her to give back, in a unique manner, to the community and culture that raised her. Through her volunteer work at the home, and the school, she hopes not only to improve the standard of spoken English of the children, but also to leave a lasting impact on their lives by spreading love and laughter. By the end of her summer with Aarti, she hopes to leave the children with creative minds, open hearts and, most importantly, friendships that last a lifetime.
