It is rightly said that “Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference” and Radhika Tanguturu is the best example of this. She is one of those noble people who lends a hand to those in need not just by giving money, but by going out of her way to ensure that they are happy. The magnanimous lady runs Radhika Charitable Trust and has been doing some applaudable work for the poor in the city ever since she began her organisation in 2010. Unlike many other NGOs, she self-funds her Trust through her own savings, thus allowing her the freedom to choose the cause closest to her heart and giving her the opportunity to work at her own pace.
