Shahithya Ravindran: volunteer spotlight

By: Camille Published: 02/02/2021

It’s no secret that our volunteers are amazing! Time after time, they make incredible efforts to get informed and take action to advocate for a world without extreme poverty. We have so much appreciation for the contributions of every single one.

Shahithya joined us following the National Conference in November 2020. She met with her Member of Parliament during the Week of Action, a Results advocacy push to secure Canada’s investment in the ACT-Accelerator. This inspired her to join Results and start her very own group. In no time, her team was meeting regularly, taking action and had set up an engaging social media presence (see on Instagram: @results_scarborough). Shahithya is determined not to let the challenges of a fully virtual environment limit her group’s ability to take action and create change.

“As an aspiring Health student, I am aware of how people's lives significantly contribute to their health and overall well-being. The surging concern of global inequalities propelled me to advocate and champion positive change for extreme poverty. With the essential tools, guidance, and nurturing environment of Results, I am able to make meaningful contributions that create equitable opportunities for vulnerable communities.”

We can't wait to see what you bring to 2021, Shahithya! Thank you for your continued advocacy efforts in support of global health, education and economic inclusion.
