Almost five years ago, while pursuing his B.E. in Computer Science from Thapar University, Karn was introduced to the Social Sector. He started volunteering at ‘Teach A Child’, an NGO working on education in Chandigarh. His experience at TAC redefined his outlook on life and led him to start a social enterprise with the vision of enabling a collaborative and interdependent social sector. The passion to work on something of his own, and the drive to make the lives of his fellow beings easier, inspired the inception of Oorjaa. Oorjaa is committed to providing assistance to not-for-profits that aspire to aid those of us who are deprived. The requirement of handling supply-chain operations to building crucial strategies for the social enterprise, allowed Karn to develop a wide range of skill sets. Currently, as part of a national CSR project, Oorjaa provides nutritional meals to 690 children daily. Also, it enables a convenient way of fulfilling the resource requirements of not for profits.
Nowadays, apart from overseeing the operations of Oorjaa, Karn is also pursuing a PGP in Development Management & Leadership at the Indian School of Development Management in Noida. He decided to embark on this journey to hone his skills and make a greater impact to the Social Sector.
