VV Impact: Man gifts boy car to make his Buggy Dreams come true

Video Volunteers website and YouTube channel IndiaUnheard have reached many unique stories from rural and urban pockets of India, urging many to join hands with our communities causes. Our viewers’ support has to date ensured victories on many fronts.

The latest came as a good Samaritan Nikhil Kashyap, a professional from Mumbai who gifted his old car to a 19-year-old boy Prem Thakur after watching one of our videos. On October 17th we featured a video made by our community correspondent Amol Lalzare, featuring Prem, a commerce student who had made a buggy car by self-learning from YouTube videos. The boy’s passion for building machines from scratch became a viral sensation overnight garnering 60,000 views in the first two days alone!

Nikhil, an avid lover of machines himself saw the video and on the very next day, 18th October chose to gift Prem the Buggy. This has been one of our fastest impacts ever. Team VV congratulates 

Team VV thanks Nikhil for his quick generosity and congratulates Prem for the car. “I will make something interesting with  this car,” Prem says.
