He first developed an interest in the sport when he saw his sister Meghna sailing in the Laser Radial category and thought of giving the sport a try himself. Since then, he has never looked back and even won the gold medal in the India International Regatta (Under-12) in 2013.An ambitious boy, Chitresh aims to grab a medal for the country in the ongoing games. He revealed his plans to The New Indian Express, "India has never won a [sailing] medal in the Asiad, but I'd like to change that. A podium finish would be perfect."

Alex Mckelvey (Acts of Kindness)

Alex is an 8 year old girl who is in her first grade. Her legacy of kindness has proved how a little girl can make a big difference. Alex was 6 years old when her maternal grandmother, Linda, died in September 2013. In her memory, Alex and her mother Sarah decided to perform 60 acts of kindness before March 22, 2014 which would have been her grandmother's 60th birthday.The acts were random and ranged from small deeds to challenging ones. They would leave a quarter taped to a gumball machine, volunteer at rescue missions, leave large tips for servers,  buy a book for a child who couldn't afford it, pick up litter and throw it away, give toys to children at the hospital .... The list goes on. Their purpose was to make someone feel important and cared for. Though Alex is only in Grade 1, she has already spent more time volunteering than most adults. Generosity comes easy to her and she plans to take tiny steps towards a more benevolent world. Alex has completed her list of 600 acts of kindness for now. Her family and friends spent weeks renovating and collecting donations for the Youth Centre at the Lakewood YMCA. Her acts of kindness have been delivered in all shapes and sizes and she looks forward to the coming year with high hopes and bigger dreams. Alex says that her aim is not to be a perfect girl or celebrity, she just wants to be a nice little girl and she's not going to stop till she's completed thousands or maybe a million of acts of kindness.

Tyler Page (Kids Helping Kids)


Human trafficking is an international problem affecting millions of people and many countries around the world. Child trafficking unlike many other issues is found in both developed and developing nations. The latest figures estimate that 1.2 million children are trafficked worldwide every year.
Tyler Page is a high school student in North California. He manages to balance school, his love of football, baseball and theater and is also helping eradicate child slavery in Ghana, Africa. He spends most of his spare time by speaking to schools, groups, and other organizations in an effort to create awareness and as an advocate to put an end to human trafficking.When he was 10, Tyler saw a television program about children in Ghana sold by their parents into forced fishing labor. He was shocked at the way the children were being treated and the inhumane conditions they had to live in.
Tyler wanted to do something to help the children come out of their miserable circumstances. After some research he found out that just $240 could keep a child out of such horrible conditions for a year. He decided to raise money with the help of his friends and suggested the idea of a carwash. He got together his classmates and friends to wash cars and raise money.Tyler's goal was to raise $240 - enough to support one Ghanaian child for a year.  But when the carwash was over, he had $1,175 in hand.Realizing that kids had the power, Tyler started recruiting young people throughout his community to help him raise money.  They hosted more carwashes, sold cookies, set up lemonade stands, and conducted other fundraisers.  His mother helped him establish a nonprofit organization called Kids Helping Kids and a website to inspire kids everywhere to make a difference in their communities.Tyler and his organization have raised more than $100,000 to aid children in Ghana, as well as to provide books for young victims of Hurricane Katrina, meals for local and global needy families, candy for troops in Iraq, assistance to kids with major medical expenses, and other causes. Tyler Page's achievements are incredible. At such a young age he has proved that it isn't about money at all, it's all about connecting the human spirit and making a difference.

Richard Turere (Lion Lights)

Richard 13, is from Kitengala on the edge of the Nairobi National Park, in Kenya. He started heading his family's cattle at the age of 9. Richard doesn't like lions, Infact he hates them, Yet this smart Maasai boy has found an innovative solution that helps the survival of these magnificient beasts by keeping them away from humans. One night when Richard was walking around with a flashlight, he discovered that lions were scared of a moving light. That's where the idea was born and he put his young mind to work. A few weeks later he came up with an innovative, simple and low-cost system to scare the predators away. Richard took a series of flashing LED bulbs from broken flashlights and rigged up an automated lighting system of four or five torch bulbs around the cattle stockade. The bulbs are wired to a box with switches, and to an old car battery charged with a solar panel that operates the family television set. They were designed to flicker on and off intermittently, thus tricking the lions into believing that someone was moving around carrying a flashlight.He calls the system Lion Lights. Richards little device of four or five lamps, some wires and a few batteries costs less than ten dollars. His family has not lost any livestock to the wild beasts, to the great delight of his father and astonishment of his neighbors. Now households across Kenya use lion lights and protect their livestock from predators and their crops from elephants, and Richard is attending a prestigious high school, studying subjects like foreign languages he never would have otherwise.

Angad Daryani (Young Shark)

Angad is a 15 years old business shark from Mumbai. He has been developing technology since a young age. He runs a start up called Shark Industries which has 2 brands Shark Kits and SharkBot 3D systems. He enjoys developing technology to solve real world problems. Most of the projects that he has built are using Open source electronics and code. He built his first Robot at the age of 8. At the age of 15 he has built the fastest and the most robust desktop 3D printer that can print any material except metal. One of his prototype 3D printers is being used at  IIT of Mumbai. Naturally, Angad doesn't have time for school. In an age when he can teach himself how to build a remote-controlled hovercraft by watching YouTube videos, what's the point of formal instruction? From one of his online bios, here's what Angad, who is technically home-schooled, says about education:I am a school student, but i admit , 90% of my learning happens outside the classroom. My second school is the internet! I gained soo much knowledge from the internet and that has helped to reach this stage of being a maker, in my life! He has also created an e-book reader for blind people, the Virtual Brailler which converts written text to  braille as it scans across a text.

Aravindh Chithambaram (Chess Master)

Aravindh is a sensational winner of The 2013 Chennai Grandmaster Open was held in celebration of the Anand-Carlsen FIDE World Championship Match. An unassuming boy, Aravindh won the tournament ahead of all the GM's and IM's and also made his maiden GM and IM norms, with a performance rating of 2728, which dwarfs his current rating of 2335. It seems we have a new prodigy to track.  His coach RB Ramesh believes that Aravindh can be a serious threat in international meets if only he gets to play in those events more often. For that, he'd need financial assistance. Let's hope things do work out for this kid, because he's one hell of a talent we can all be proud of.

Risha Shukla (Spreading Cheer)

Risha is an inspiring teenager who despite being sick spreads cheer and is a beacon of hope to others in similar situations. Risha's illness has prevented her from going to school but she is determined to fight this, go to school, and become a doctor to help find a cure for many of the medical conditions she and other children like her are fighting. Her family has been very supportive and her sister Rhea, 14, offers constant support, even giving Risha, an insulin shot once despite a deep phobia of needles. The pair has missed quite a few normal teenage milestones - birthday parties, school dances and extracurricular activities. Yet they have the strength to go on, to take everything life throws at them and still find happiness and rejoice in the little things. Inspired by her won medical struggles, Risha started The Kids Who Care Foundation which is a nonprofit organisation that raises about $7,000 to $10,000 in cash donations each year. The money is received from various grants that Risha brings in by speaking at different events and the rest from private parties or corporations. Proceeds go toward smile packs or care packages for children in hospitals around the country; crafts and puppet shows and other operational costs. Volunteers offer their time to deliver the smile packs, most of which contain donated toys. The organisation also helped build a children's playroom at the Attam-Vallabh Hospital in rural India. Determined to share her optimism and strength with others, Risha, who interns at UC Irvine's new stem cell lab, hopes to enter the medical field and research stem cell or islet cell transplants, which are used for patients with pancreatitis. Risha has been a hope and inspiration to many youths in the community and has won several awards for her philanthropic work at the young age of 16.
