Life before fame:

Walk into the limelight:
Having delivered over 2500 lectures and programs across India to spread awareness about the importance of education, the foundation believes to connect with people to show them the importance of education. As a result, the foundation aims to open branches of the foundation all across India. Having achieved over 2.5 lakh subscribers on their YouTube channel, they have accumulated over 21 million views. This has been life-changing for the differently-abled students and an eye-opener to others.
