After the success of his web series, Actor and philanthropist Vivek Anand Oberoi has now shifted his focus on philanthropy work. The actor has been invited by Nobel Peace Laureate Mr Kailash Satyarthi to flag off 11,000 km yatra creating awareness against child sexual abuse, sexual exploitation and child trafficking.

“It takes a great deal of dedication and courage to bring such a massive change in the society. I strongly feel we all should come forward and support the causes of child sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, assault and trafficking. I’m really grateful to Kailash Satyarthi for inviting me and giving me the opportunity to be part of this noble cause,” says Vivek.

Young Indians (Yi) has collaborated with Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation (KSCF) to curb the social bane of child sexual abuse and child trafficking as Yi initiative – Masoom by spreading awareness and desensitizing the issue. KSCF in collaboration with Young Indians has invited Vivek to be the Guest of Honour at the curtain raiser event for their campaign ‘Bharat Yatra’ – a preventive intervention on issues related to children.
