Who We are?
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”
~ Margaret Mead
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much”
~ Helen Keller
We are learners. We are doubters. We are experimenters. We are a group of individuals who have studied in top institutions such as IITs/IIMs/TISS in India. Some of us have also gone and studied at top institutions abroad. We have worked in both the corporate and social sectors. We have our set of theories of change, which have emerged from our own unique experiences. We wish to play a small, yet significant role in bringing a positive change in societies/communities we live in..
