Sixteen years ago, we started with a MISSION to identify, nurture and empower every gifted child in India for nation-building. In year 2017-2018, we challenged ourselves to find these hidden gems from the most deprived socio-economic sections. We found gifted students amongst those who have been abandoned by society as they are children of commercial sex workers and affected by HIV AIDS. We have also shifted our focus towards nurturing and empowering gifted girls through our VAMA program. As India has a Matru-Pradhan culture, we believe that a girl should be empowered first to strengthen her community.
