Hema’s interest in volunteering goes back to her initial brush with Sociology where giving back to the community and being a part of change was the motivation. Her blog on volunteering Simple Serve brought  in many volunteers into the community. The idea was “It is one thing to be a part of the community and it is another matter to belong and be social in it” as was her motto to bring in folks into the folds of community service.

She believed that once laying down the roots in a locality, giving back and tending to what is lacking as is possible in one’s ability is the best way for communities to thrive. In this regard, she helped her son with finding volunteering opportunities in town and started the Ootsav campaign which has been going on for the last four years.

Hema Waghray has volunteered in varying capacities at the municipal level, in the larger community and was also a co-founder of a non profit.
