My profile

I am a social entrepreneur and currently the Chief Executive Officer of the Crayons of Hope Foundation and The Wall O Books Project.

We walk up to all kinds of places in India, collect 100 kids and help them build a hyper-cool library of their own using just a wall – and so we call this a Wall O Books – equip it with a startup stash of 100 books (and a world map, a light bulb and a few more things :) and elect a little librarian to take care of it.

Today we run 100 dedicated Wall O Books Centers giving 10,000 vulnerable children in India a new way to read, learn and connect. We are on a mission to build 2900 Wall O Books in India – 100 in each state to give millions of children a powerful new way to discover the world outside and connect with each other.

Crayons of Hope Foundation was named a ‘pacesetter’ by LEGO/ASHOKA in the Re-iMAGINE LEARN!NG Challenge in 2014.
