Athiya Shetty has been living a life full of compassion and charity right from her childhood days and she hasn't stopped even till date. She invests time in her mother's welfare organisation Save The Children and has now taken the lead from her mother Mana and is managing it all by herself. She opened up about how she got into charity and walked down memory lane by saying, "I started when I was 10. I used to go after school ended and help teach children with special needs. And then as I grew older, I started working with adolescent girls, who were rescued."

Not only does Athiya Shetty donate money to the welfare association, she personally spends a lot of time with the children and feels time is more valuable to the children than money. She said, "Time, I feel, is more important for these children, they feel special and loved when you even spend half a day with them. Besides that, I try and give away a percentage of my income and clothes and whatever I think they'd like/need."
