Dr. Prahalathan KK
Social Innovator, Impact Leader, and Doctor - Opthalmologist in Chennai, India
I co-founded Bhumi - one of India’s largest non-profit volunteer organisations enabling thousands across India to volunteer for education and civic issues.
Further to creating a sustainable model that engages over 30,000 volunteers across 30 cities in India, I started the ‘Chennai Auto’ campaign in 2012 to bring back auto meters in Chennai.
I quit ophthalmology a couple of years back to join Bhumi full-time where I lead the corporate & youth volunteering programmes and handle Strategy, partnerships, fundraising & Public Relations. I am also an Acumen Fellow.
