Nishant Panicker and Aniruddah Vorunganti are the kind of people who cannot but leave you thoroughly impressed.

Aniruddah studies medicine at Oxford university, whilst Nishant studies biology in Bengaluru and is also a skilled Hindustani music practitioner.

The two 18-year-olds, while studying in National Public School in Bengaluru, developed a “school-pairs” model that allows an exchange between donor and recipient schools to provide and share resources such as notebooks and other stationery.

So far, they have collected around 8 tonnes of paper, and given stationery to approximately 800 students!
