Personiv Team Members From Across the Globe Trek Through The Himalayan Hampta Pass To Help Vulnerable Children Find Loving Homes.

Personiv team reaches peak in Himalayas to help orphans worldwide.

One of Personiv’s foremost cultural pillars is the social responsibility initiative of ‘Giving Back’. We firmly believe in supporting the communities where we live and work in ways that will make the highest impact; it’s something we like to call, ‘Being Human’, David Lesniak, CEO, Personiv said.

In their second such effort, members from each of Personiv’s four global sites set out from the Kullu Valley in Himachal Pradesh, India, on September 11 to raise money for the non-profit Miracle Foundation that aims to give orphans around the world a safe home. On September 14, the team completed the challenging four-day hike through the Pir Panjal range of the Himalayas as ‘One Personiv’. The trek took the team across river rapids, steep boulder walks and two glaciers to an altitude of 14,050 feet between the Veo Dibba and Indrasan peaks.

This year’s trek was the company’s largest yet with a total of 50 Personiv team members participating including nine from Personiv’s Austin, Texas headquarters; 10 from the site in Manila, Philippines; 13 from Coimbatore, India; and 18 from Gurugram, India. The global group came together as one under the leadership of Personiv CEO David Lesniak.

“One of Personiv’s foremost cultural pillars is the social responsibility initiative of ‘Giving Back’. We firmly believe in supporting the communities where we live and work in ways that will make the highest impact; it’s something we like to call, ‘Being Human’,” Lesniak said. “This donation to Miracle Foundation will help children in need on a global scale.”

Along the way, trekkers encountered physically demanding terrain, breathtakingly beautiful vistas and raised over $5,000 for Miracle Foundation. The global non-profit provides life-changing resources for orphaned children around the world by advocating for their rights and working to reunite them with family whenever possible.

This is the second time that Personiv has raised funds for the foundation, adding to the more than $20,000 raised and presented to Miracle Foundation as part of their original Trek for a Cause up the famed Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa with all nine team members reaching the peak of 19,341 feet in March 2019.

Caroline Boudreaux, Founder of Miracle Foundation had this to say of the partnership between Miracle Foundation and Personiv on that occasion: “Personiv is a perfect partner for Miracle. We move and climb mountains every day to help orphaned children reach their full potential,” she said. “Personiv climbed a literal mountain in order to bring awareness to the plight of orphans. Thank you to everyone who worked to support children who need the love of a good parent. Your partnership changed lives.”
