Monday, August 1, 2016

NOIDA: Akshat Mittal, the teenage social entrepreneur, who had developed www.odd-even.com last year, is again ready with a new venture. This time he is determined to bring a social change in the country with a website – www.changemyindia.org.

The ChangeMyIndia is an initiative to bring about change in country which people want, said the teen entrepreneur. He said that the country has some social problems. “Some people try to solve the problems but some people just curse and hope that someone someday will solve these issues. I have made a platform where the people who want to see the change and who are bringing the change come together. They will share their experiences and success stories. This will inspire others to make a better world,” said Akshat, a class IX student of Amity International School, Noida Sector 44. He lives in IP Extension in Delhi.

Akshat said that he always thought about solving problems of the society. In May, Ashoka India selected him as one of the teen social entrepreneurs under its “Youth Venture Programme.”
