Who We Are

Empowering Individuals & Communities

We are a team of spirited individuals, who believe we can make a difference and that it is important to give back to our society. Our beginning was simple and with sincere intentions, to create support structures that would help provide tools like education, shelter, food and hope for those children and youth of marginalized communities.

We have come a long way since 1999 when we worked with like minded people to open the Kaveri English medium School in Kulavoor district in Mangalore, India. Today we actively run 6 grassroot level initiatives that facilitate basic education and health services for children, youth, women and communities in Mumbai (Bombay), India.

We have embarked on two ambitious new projects, Hospital for the Homeless and The Young Women's Welfare Centre. To learn more, please don't hesitate to contact us.

What We Do

Our work

We believe that children are our roots and it’s important to nurture roots with love and care for their better future. We believe in strengthening the inner capabilities of children, women, youth & communities as a whole. So that they can sustain themselves. Though our prime focus was working with children, education and rights when we started, now we are also committed towards working for youth, women and communities.

We have developed unique social initiatives using innovative tools for developing sustainable models to empower marginalized communities. Health, education and rights have been are focus areas of work. We pride ourselves in developing one of its kind community developments model like the School on Wheels and Aastha, an ambulance service for the homeless.
