She helped in setting up the JAYA HE Museum inside the swanky new Terminal 2 of Mumbai Airport by using her skills and knowledge.

Mrs. Pinky Reddy donates the funds raised from ‘Adaa’ to Aparna Foundation which supports the educational and health needs of more than 300 under-resourced students. She is the chairperson of the annual Hyderabad 10K run which trains the children for international sports meets.

With her amazing skills and talent, she has proved to be successful in her professional and personal life as well. She is an avid lover of art and has supported budding artisans for many years.
