About Us.


India’s growth in the past two decades has been phenomenal. We are one of the  fastest growing economies, yet we fare badly when it comes to social indices such as that of education, health, gender equality, employment etc.

India dropped one spot to 132 among 191 countries in the 2022 Human Development Index, according to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). Clearly, development is about improving the wellbeing of every individual in society so they can reach their full potential and the success of a society is linked to the well-being of each and every citizen.

Leaving aside the rhetoric of the current economic growth success, it is the education level of its population which will determine in the long run India’s democratic credentials and its commitment towards tackling poverty.
