FOUNDERS:

Neeraj and Vishaka, a husband wife duo who hail from the beautiful tea growing region of Darjeeling in India and have been living in the UK since 2005. In 2009 they came across a school in their hometown of Darjeeling that was in urgent need of some repairs and assistance. The school was located amidst the tea gardens and so served the children of tea garden workers and other impoverished villagers in the area. As the duo attributed their own success to the education they had received and firmly believed in the role of education in providing equal opportunities and in alleviating poverty, they decided to help and raised the required funds to provide much-needed assistance.
