About Us

Our Initiative

HELP Chennai aims to bridge the digital divide and help underprivileged students access online education. HELP collects old and new digital devices, services them and provides them to students in need. This serves the twin objectives of reducing e-waste and accelerating the virtuous cycle of education.


Gunisha Aggarwal started this initiative as a class 12 student in Chennai in 2020. She is currently a student at the University of Warwick. She is incredibly interested in giving back to society and community service projects.

In the past, she has conducted outreach programmes through the medium of storytelling with the Police Boys and Girls Clubs. She distributed over 1,500 kits containing essentials to daily wage labourers by raising funds through crowdfunding and using her own pocket money during the pandemic. In recognition of her initiatives, she was awarded the COVID Warrior Award by ALERT NGO and featured in NDTV’s Aaj Ka Sitara Campaign. Through HELP Chennai, she hopes to bridge the digital divide, one device and one student at a time!
