Team Abhimanyu-the Hope and Team Bheeshma-the Saviour were formed in May 2020 with a noble vision, “Attitude of Gratitude”, immediately after the Covid-19 outbreak in India. The main objective of the teams is to help the disadvantaged and vulnerable groups in society. They distributed groceries to 335 families of private school teachers who had lost their jobs to Covid-19 in Tirupati, Vijayawada, Nellore, Visakhapatnam, Chandragiri, and Hyderabad. Not only did they provide groceries to government school students, but they also offered a large quantity of hand sanitizers, masks, vaporizers, and stationary items. The teams travelled across the districts of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana conducting food distribution drives and raising funds for medical treatments, especially for private school/college teachers. Local newspaper “Sakshi” and ETV Network have featured stories about the teams and they were awarded mementoes for community services. The teams plan projects for educating the underprivileged and looking after the elderly in near future. Team Abhimanyu and Team Beeshma are perfect examples of old heads on young shoulders who sail on philanthropic voyages in spite of the challenges.
