Building the next generation of problem solvers

Kuldeep Dantewadia is the CEO & co-founder of Reap Benefit. Reap Benefit builds the next generation of problem solvers, by involving youth in developing skills, local data and solutions to solve local environment and civic problems.

After college, Kuldeep dabbled with a few ideas in the environment space before deciding to participate in an inspirational countrywide trip, Jaagriti Yatra. To understand all the aspects of waste management, Kuldeep personally collected garbage from 150 households in Bangalore. He also started doing carbon footprint audits for corporate firms as way to meet operating costs.

To create an environmentally aware and active generation, Kuldeep has designed a participatory method of learning about environmental issues. He increases children's and youth's empathy in a sustainable manner through long-term engagement and real-life problem-solving activities related to environmental issues. Reap Benefit works with private and government school students, as well as youngsters in college to solve local problems of waste, water, sanitation, energy and air quality. They also partner with organisations to address local problems through research, solution implementation and innovation development. The learnings from their body of work are shared, so that they aid in problem solving processes.

Reap Benefit has worked with more than 15,000 youngsters across 240 schools and colleges. The team has helped divert 270 tonnes of waste from landfills and save more than 19 million litres of water. The team has developed 6 low cost solutions and their project was selected as the recipient of Asha Stanford's Google Innovation Grant.
