Mr G Ravi Babu, 38years is a “mirror image of socially driven force”. A post graduate in social sciences has started career as civil servant aspirant. It was a “dream come true” in 2005 when he has conceptualized formation of “DESIRE Society”, with a vision of "no child will die of HIV/AIDS" in India. Under this umbrella, his vision has been led to Institutional Care Homes for about 200 HIV orphan children and Supplementary Nutrition kits to about 800 HIV positive children in India. Being honorary founder president of the organization, he holds full time role as an Executive Director at DESIRE Society.

 

Though the idea of founding organization is a collective by friends, but he plays a vital role in the development of the organization with an uncompromised dedication. He always believes, sudden demise of his childhood friend with HIV was an influential factor behind the cause of serving HIV/AIDS children at DESIRE Society. When he lost his friend in year 1996, it was most unforgettable situation, which he could not absorb and made up his mind that he should render his best services by all means to the HIV/AIDS patients in his life time.
