Stories of Hope

Little philanthropists and Math stars

11-year-old Raghav Krishna and 8-year-old Madhav Krishna are two inspirational brothers living in Dubai who have a passion to make a difference in the lives of children of determination so they too can live life to the fullest and reach their full potential.

These extraordinary siblings are champions in mental math calculations and prize winners at national and international competition levels and are eager to help others by using their mental calculation skills.

Although 2020 brought many challenges with social distancing these young boys found the ideal platform to use their talents to fulfill their ambition. They set up a YallaGive campaign to raise funds for Al Jalila Foundation’s Ta’alouf (“harmony” in Arabic) program that empowers children of determination by equipping teachers and parents with the necessary skills to enable them to flourish.

Through the online fundraising campaign potential donors can simply set up a virtual meeting with the siblings to pose mathematical questions and the brothers will perform instant calculations. The donors are encouraged to contribute to the charity initiative based on the brothers’ performance.

Their campaign has been so successful that in less than 2 months the brothers have almost reached their fundraising goal of AED 25,000.
