“India has a special place in my heart and in my career, and I want to express my gratitude by giving back to the community. The mission of the Alok Institute mission is to promote transformational changes and improve the lives of thousands of people, and each of the organizations we are working with embodies that ethos by focusing on programs that deliver tangible outcomes,” said Alok. “My life, my work, and the Institute’s presence are global, but my focus as a philanthropist is very local and based on delivering concrete outcomes.”
“At Garena, our mission is to better lives through technology, and we are passionate about making a positive contribution to our communities. Everyone involved in this initiative is focused on creating a meaningful and long-lasting impact for young people in India, particularly those in underserved communities. We are honored to partner with the Alok Institute to support these programs,” said Harold Teo, Free Fire Producer at Garena.
