Family members and society called him “a man who went mad for society”. For an answer to a quest for sustainable development he went for MSW studies at Don Bosco Institute (institute of Social Work) after a study gap of almost 11 year and came back with the passion, knowledge and skills to bring an answer to his long quest.
He is responsible for making the organisation grow into shape through his relentless efforts, experiment of knowledge and networking skills. When asked why he love development of the people so much, he said, “I was the victim of poverty, violence and conflict and I don’t want others to be victim again, I want to see people living with peace and dignity”. He strongly believe that poverty should not be the reason why people should not reach their dream. He had seen many promising young people ending up with gun in their hand just because they cannot afford to go to school/college and become a liability rather an asset. He comes up with ‘Gun to Pen’ a flagship program of the organisation that help young people access to education and Mothers to start earning through their own small business enterprises.
