“The most memorable part of my volunteering experience was meeting people who wanted to take a decisive step aimed at improving their lives. The sense of purpose and desire to excel shown by [the participants of training program] pushed me to match up to their enthusiasm,” said Vinay Lekharaju, a Deloitte LLP Information Management Consultant based out of Philadelphia.  “Success in life comes through hard work, but more than hard work it is the right frame of mind, the desire, the determination and the perseverance which leads one to success.”
