The concept of OLD AGE Homes still gives us a question mark, thinking about the subtle mental condition of a son or a daughter which makes them think of sending their parents (who made them make their first step) to an orphaned state at an Old Age Home. Today’s technological revolution is making more and more old age and shelter homes to come up, because in this money making materialistic world we are forgetting the value of love, being loved and giving it back to the needy.
On behalf of Shraddh or Shraddha (a ritual wherein we honour our great grandparents and beloved) we visited Sai Sahara Old Age Home at Todapur, Rajendra Place and made the grandpas and grandmas stretch their wrinkles, smile at least for a short while. The event was conceptualized and sponsored by Mr.Rajesh Arora (Good Enough NGO) and Orchestrated by Meenakshi Paswan (Old Age Home Projects Leader, HelpingBrainz) and Dr.Shweta Yadav (Volunteer, HelpingBrainz).
It’s better to serve, honour, help and at least love them when their alive rather than calling a function to remember them.
You’re soon going to be in their shoes
With tears of happiness,
Today being Vijayadashmi, we happily launch ”
“. A programme, conceptualized by Nidhi P. Menon (Nidhi Didi is a HelpingBrain from God’s Own Country), aims in identifying a HelpingBrain every month from various walks of life.
How’s a HelpingBrain?
The concept of being a HelpingBrain: We believe everyone is a Helping Brain, everyone is blessed with something unique skill and we try to enrich and furnish the skill set for community development, as we strongly believe that knowledge increases on sharing. Thus HelpingBrainz is a not an NGO however a phenomenon.
Stay tuned to hear about the First HelpingBrain from October 2017. For further information and to nominate someone please write to Nidhimenon@helpingbrainz.org
“A woman with a voice is, by definition, a strong woman.” —Melinda Gates
To become their voice, to increase their communication by committing to their voice, to practically implement what they voiced for, to make them feel that they are heard; HelpingBrainz’s Women Empowerment Team – Chhaya holded a 2-hour long #ChaipeCharcha with the 30+ underprivileged women from the various areas of Dharampura, Najafgarh. The activity was conducted in association with Anurag Foundation led by Archana Srivastava. The event was orchestrated by Madhup Modi and Kirti Tikyani, and others who shouldered their determination were Nidhi P. Menon , Shipra Mathur, Priyanka and Yedhu Krishna Menon
It was a tough 2 hours discussion where women between 17-65 participated and talked and debated about their hurdles, challenges and roadblocks and as a conclusion HelpingBrainz decided to conduct, Career Counselling sessions, Health Awareness Campaigns, Classroom trainings, Nurture Women Leaders, Training on Art and Craft, TeachWithHelpingBrainz programmes and set-up a library.
We alone cannot make a difference, thus require Changemakers, volunteers and interns to join hands with us, for further details please connect us at firstname.lastname@example.org
This was our 94th social development event.
“The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future in life” – Plato
To strengthen the direction of education of the underprivileged children from Ramraj Anathalay Sahibabad, the educational counselling team at HelpingBrainz beautifully led by Vikas Jain conducted a talk show and educational empowerment session for the children at the orphanage. This was part of our Teacher’s Day Celebrations 🙂
The show was co-supported by Nidhi P.Menon (Chapter Leader, HelpingBrainz Kerala) and Madhup Modi (Child Empowerment Projects Head at HelpingBrainz). Also the team emphasized the beauty of teaching being a teacher, as many from the audience were interested to become a teacher. As a next step we would be providing a career counselling session for the children at the orphanage. This was our 93rd social development event.
HelpingBrainz’s Child Empowerment Team beautifully led by Madhup Modi conducted an educational counselling and a dental campaign for the 100+ underprivileged children from Dharampura, Najafgarh, Delhi, India .

Educational Counselling session was effectively delivered by Vikas Jain, an Engineer who considers empowering children as his passion (a Helping Brain since 2014), and Dental Campaigns were led by Dr. Shweta Yadav and Dr.Abha (the passionate medical practitioners, who wish to see a disease free world). The event was orchestrated by Madhup Modi, Project Head – Child Empowerment Team, HelpingBrainz.
#Love #Happiness #Smile
Love! We always get mesmerized by the language of love they speak!
Happiness! Their happiness makes our inner consciousness enlightened!
Smile! We feel blessed for becoming an instrument to make a smile happen, which appears like a zephyr in the life’s darkness they’re being through.
Helping Brainz spend their last weekend with the Mothers and Sisters of Jeevodaya Ashralaya by being advocates of love, happiness and lots of smile.
Meenakshi Paswan, Remya, Dr. Shweta Yadav and Vivek Vaid and Vivek Vaid sponsored a delicious lunch prepared with Shri Dharmasastha Ayyappa Pooja Samiti Hastsal. Sreelakshmi, Shipra Mathur Shivasni Bhatt Meenakshi Paswan, Vandana, Jitendra Kushwaha and Yedhu Krishna Menon volunteered for the event. We thank Shri Dharmasastha Ayyappa Pooja Samiti Hastsal and Jeevodaya Ashralaya for this opportunity.
We’re 5 years old.. Nostalgia, the long five years. Pains, struggles, fights, happiness, achievements and what not : however today we stand as a respectful brand in the society. People trusts us. We showed the public that community service stands more than what we call philanthropy, showing empathy and sympathy and giving donations. Thanks to everyone who stood, is standing and will stand with us. We all believe and trust each other and this positivity makes outreaches happy and that makes us *Helping Brainz*
Today also being my dad’s birthday, I wish to say one line he told me when he came to know about Helping Brainz (after two years of start), *we rise by lifting others*.
Thank you 🙂
Yedhu Krishna Menon, HelpingBrainz
It’s hard to write about what Helping Brainz experienced today at Ramraj Seva Kendra (Orphanage), however in our journey to develop this nation – we turned a page with a certain level of satisfaction when WE made them feel that they are not alone in their lonely world of silence, sharing infinite amount love and happiness.
Helping Brainz conducted Ujjwal – A Day with Chotus at Ramraj Seva Kendra Orphanage, Sahibabad. As usual Ujjwal consisted of Paint Your Dreams painting competition, School Stationery and One Time Meal Distribution, Dental Campaigns, Healthcare Campaign, Game Shows and lots of happiness. Around 35 children from the Orphanage painted their dreams with Helping Brainz.
School stationery items were donated by Bhuwan Chandra and Team from Ameriprise Financials, Gurgaon; Meals were sponsored by Mrs. Monika Ghosh, Gagandeep Kaur and Dr.Renu Verma. Gifts were sponsored by Rajesh Kumar Ahuja. The best painter was awarded a special prize from Ramsons Locks.
People who contributed today were Bhuwan Chandra Pant , Vijay Kumar, Shahzad, Ankita from Ameriprise Financials Gurgaon; Mrs. Monika Ghosh. ; Dr.Abha Singh and Dr.Shweta Yadav (Dental Campaigns); and Mr.Rajesh Kumar Ahuja. From Helping Brainz we had Madhup Modi, Prateek Sudera and Vanshita Kumar (Event Organizers), along with Kirti Tikyani, Anup Shanker , Pratik Raj Bishen Sandeep Gujjar, Sanjeev Verma, Sugandha Sharma, and Yedhu Krishna Menon.
We thank everyone who made a difference today.
Imbibing respect for the old age among the youth is one of the key aspect Helping Brainz focuses on. Young Helping Brainz mates from the engineering colleges of Meerut conducted an old age home visit near Shopprix Mall, #Meerut on Father’s day. Well it’s a Helping Brainz culture to celebrate the ‘days’ with the abandoned and orphaned.
Our teammates from Meerut spent an entire day ”stretching the wrinkles”, “cooking food for them”, “sharing and hearing stories” and “making a difference”. A Dental Campaign was orchestrated along with the same.
People who contributed were @Harshit Gupta, Eklavya Agarwal, Utsav Anand, Mansi Gupta, Prakriti Jain and Satyam Kumar.
Our grandparents come and stay with us, and we definitely feel the affection. Think about those grandmas and grandpas who really want to be with their grandchildren however are caged within the walls of an old age home, with no one to share and care for them. Well old age homes and the people who cage them are still a mystery!
HelpingBrainz.Org’s Elderly Care team to show its commitment towards the senior citizens of the country and in its mission to improve the lives of the elderly by providing companionship visited Sai Sahara Old Age home located near Rajendra Place metro station.
We together watched a cricket match, shared gossips, had tea, clicked photographs and donated few vegetables. Thanks to Dr.Rajeshwari for this opportunity. People who contributed were Pratee Sudera, Gitanshu Khurana , @Kirti Tikyani, Vanshita Kumar, Parul and Yedhu Krishna Menon .
