Founding Story

When a Chotu working at a cycle shop was spotted and he could make his way to a school . When Rupa ,who was working with her mother as a maid ,found changes in herself in terms of expression and being aware ..when tiny tots at construction sites left playing in mud and made their way to the radio station to be friends with books and letters ,it really created an "Aha" moment and have the confidence that yes !!!!! the numbers of Chotu's will deplete and not increase ..
