Ishaan Balakrishnan of 7th Grade of Indira National School Pune has developed a mobile app for connecting people with surplus food to those who are needy.
Ishaan has managed to do this thanks to the coding experience he picked up learning via Codingal. This is an online learning platform that teaches kids how to code so that they are prepared to take a modern world where the skill has become that much more coveted.
In the app, a person can tell that they have a surplus food, so that it can give to the needy people
Ishaan is more focused on integrating research with technology which was critical to ensure impact design and enable scale.
Ishaan himself says he was inspired by the needy people who on live on footpath and does not have food to eat, and clothes to wear. In particular, he says that he was inspired to change the poverty of India by helping needy people of our country.
This is exactly the kind of interest we need to build in young children in the country. You can force kids to take up science and engineering in college all you want. But it’s not unless they can really develop a passion for it that they will achieve great things. And this is how you start.
