About Radhika J
Radhika is using creative interventions to spread awareness about organ donation in India.
After Radhika lost a loved one to kidney failure, she launched The Second Chance Project. Through creative interventions such as street plays and organ donation aprons, Radhika’s team offers innovative, easy-to-implement, and cost-effective methods for education and awareness around the importance of donating organs.
As of July 2019, the team has sensitized 700+ individuals and registered 50+ individuals to become organ donors through various awareness drives and workshops. They have started youth-led city chapters in Dehradun and Delhi with plans to expand in Mumbai.
