FORA.tv Speaker - Neha Gupta
The concept of Empower Orphans was ideated by Neha Gupta in 2005, when she was only nine years old.
When Neha was nine years old, the harsh reality of the orphaned children's prospects hit Neha hard. Instead of just feeling empathy towards them, she took action and decided that she wanted to help make a difference in the lives of the orphans.
Neha has raised more than $250000 thus far.
She has won numerous awards for her efforts, including: World of Children Award, Kohls Cares, Gold Level President's Volunteer Service Award; Great Friend to Kids Award; 2nd Prize for Wachovia's 2008 National Philanthropic Award; Bronze Medal for the Prudential Spirit of Community Award; Philadelphia 76ers Hometown Hero Award; as well as becoming a finalist for the Philadelphia Inquirer's 2008 and 2009 Citizen of the Year.
