History

Nimish R Parekh and Mukti K Bosco co founded this organisation together, with a vision to provide affordable, accessible and quality health care to the poor and marginalised people in India. Our foundation’s focus is to serve women, as she is the caretaker of her family’s health. To frame the work three rules were set:

  1. To listen and understand the problems of the women, whom we were going to serve without any pre- thought ideas.
  2. To make the women we serve as partners in problem solving.
  3. Partnering and collaborating with the ones working in the community, as we do not believe inventing something. But, use the existing ideas out there by complimenting, collaborating and partnering with them.
