Arhan is a dynamic member of Teach for India - a nationwide movement of college graduates and young professionals who teach full time in low income schools in pursuit of equity in education. A burning desire to serve his country brought him back to a classroom in Loknete Yashwantrao Chavan Vidyaniketan in Yerwada, Pune, where he strives to give his students the same education, opportunities and life choices that are available to those from privileged backgrounds. Being passionate about sports, Arhan started a football program for children called 'Just for Kicks'. This inspiring young gentleman added some intensely emotional moments to TEDxSIBMPune as he played some touching videos featuring the children that he teaches. Arhan spoke about how his belief in using games as a fun means to build character, teamwork and sportsmanship worked as an inspiration to form 'Just for Kicks'. Making everyone realize how they could extend a helping hand to innocent children in need, Arhan left the audience with some valuable food for thought coupled with a smile.
