Technology for Change was captivating! We exceeded our target and raised $950,000 to provide mid-day meals to school children and COVID relief to migrant workers in India.
The evening was eloquently led in a scintillating conversation with Mr. Narayana Murthy, Chairman Emeritus of Infosys by Siva Sivaram, President of Western Digital. Mr. Sivaram was recently appointed Chairman of Akshaya Patra Foundation USA. Mr. Murthy touched on many aspects of giving, success, and individual responsibilities throughout the conversation. As a long time Akshaya Patra supporter, Mr. Murthy stressed the importance of contributing, no matter how big or small, to bring a smile on a child’s face who otherwise would have slept hungry or skipped school. His formula for success remains the same throughout his life: to be successful is to bring a smile onto another person’s face.
