Speaker: Nipun Mehta

Where Do We Find Gandhi Today?

Nipun Mehta is the founder of ServiceSpace (formerly CharityFocus).  In 2001, at the age of 25, Nipun quit his job to become a "full time volunteer." Since then, his work has reached millions, he has received many prestigious awards, and has tirelessly addressed hundreds of gatherings in person. In 2005, Nipun and Guri, his wife of six months, embarked on a walking pilgrimage in India to "use our hands to do acts of kindness, use our heads to profile inspiring people, and use our hearts to cultivate truth."  The 1000 kilometer walk radically deepened their commitment to service, and also was the subject of Nipun's address at UPenn's commencement in 2012.  Nipun's mission statement in life reads: "Bring smiles in the world and stillness in my heart."

On this call, Nipun will share stories from his four month journey to India, and reflect on the emergent theme of "Gandhi 3.0".
