One of many solutions makers of SDG2: Zero Hunger week is the Ridhi Foundation from India.
 
The term RIDHI means wealth and happiness, a volunteering service run by Saurabh Dhanuka who is also the founder and brain behind RIDHI Foundation. The vision of RIDHI is very simple, to bring out the best in less fortunate families and kids, in whatever way we can. The team behind RIDHI are young minds who are working professionals who spare their time to help these families and kids by providing them food, clothes, education and everything possible to make them believe that life is full of happiness for them too. 
 
At RIDHI, Saurabh along with his team keeps doing campaigns for underprivileged kids every now and then like they did a Mango festival in summer this year for them and distributed 500 kgs of mangoes in slums and orphanages. Last year, they did liquid food distribution because of extreme summer in certain parts of the country. They distributed liquid food to more than 20,000 kids on a single day. 
 
Saurabh firmly believes that “It is not about how successful you are, it is all about how successfully you are helping these kids.” As per statistical figures obtained by various organizations, about 800 million people in the world are undernourished. India alone is a home of more than 180 million people who don't get enough food every day.   “If you ask me, how successful I am with RIDHI Foundation, I would score myself 1 out of 10 because I feel there is no end to this issue. There are so many people who don't get to eat 3 meals a day and this issue is now at an alarming stage. But I am happy that I am trying to make a difference with whatever resources I have.“, the founder added.
 
Saurabh also runs a food venture in India. It’s called JAB WE ATE and from day 1 of its operation, He decided, he will do something to provide food to less fortunate families. To date, they put 10% of their total income every month aside to provide food and education to these amazing kids. 
 
In cities like Mumbai and Delhi, they are doing something different. They are trying to provide education and motivational training to acid attack victim girls. moreover, they are trying to provide them jobs which will keep them motivated in life. 
 
“Though we have a long way to go, I am a firm believer of a fact that, if you don't start, you will never reach the finish line.”, concluded Saurabh.
