This is not the first time that Ayaan has fundraised for ActionAid Association. In 2022, Ayaan planned a fundraiser through his organization FutureMinds4Kids
which offers students the chance to learn coding online by teaching classes on different programming languages such as Scratch, HTML/CSS, Python, and Java. Before this, Ayaan donated an oxygen concentrator to ActionAid Association during the second wave of COVID-19 infections to help vulnerable families survive the impact of the pandemic.
We at ActionAid Association are grateful to Ayaan, Numaa, and Amogh for their hard work, commitment to education, and longstanding support!
