I spy with my little eye

I spy with my little eye - a world free of hunger
I spy with my little eye - a safe home for every kid
I spy with my little eye - a greener tomorrow
I spy with my little eye - love and kindness all around

Hi, I am Abhijay Potluri, I am 9 years old. "I Spy" had always been a favorite game for me and my brother Adithya. This is a game we all kids can relate, where one player becomes the spy, and selects an object for other players to find. And It very much applies to everything happening around us.
In our day to day, we all spy on so many things happening in front of our eyes. I spy people who are homeless, I spy kids who cannot go to school, I spy racism around us, I spy elderly people who need help, I spy people who throw food away on one side and people who die of hunger on the other side ...
Walking away is not an option anymore. Only if we could start acting in any smaller way on everything we spy, to start making a difference. Let us be the change for a better tomorrow.

What We Do

Our goal is to start taking action towards anything and anywhere, We can help in any smaller way.
We want to raise awareness among other kids and show that we are never too small to bring a change.
Let us keep our eyes wide open and spy on everything happening around us and help in any way we can, to show that we care.

All the little and big things around us, We all can help in little ways to make a difference and raise awareness
