1.Paypal ‘Girls in Technology’ Program
Indian IT industries are more male dominant. As per a report, the IT workforce consists of only 34% Women.
To create interest for girls to take ‘IT’ as a career choice, Paypal has organized an event called ‘Girls in technology’ where we @Team Everest NGO took 30 Girls from Govt Hr Sec School, Sholinganallur, Chennai to Paypal office for a day long workshop.
The students were exposed to use computers, learned how to make PowerPoint presentation, financial literacy and much more. This is the first time, all students get a chance to step inside a corporate.

How often you got an opportunity to visit an old age home when you are a student?
Our Team Everest NGO students who are part of ‘Smile 100’ scholarship program have formed a ‘Kindness Club’ and visit an old age home on every Sunday to spend time with them and spread the smiles selflessly.
4.Feeding Homeless People Every Week
For Team Everest NGO, students are not just beneficiaries. They are change makers too. Our students who are part of ‘Smile 100’ scholarship program want their place to be Hunger Free. Hence they came up with an initiative to provide food for the homeless people.
