Becoming I Foundation is an internationally recognized youth-led organization that is creating a platform for young people to come face to face with community development projects. I was part of the team that founded the Bangalore Chapter. We ran two projects - Discovery and Leap.

Project Discovery helped the students build upon their academic concepts through the means of activities and experiments carried out in the class, aiming to enable curiosity among students. Project Leap took an interesting turn with a whole bunch of extracurricular activities, helping the kids explore their talents in the field of Dance, Music, Art, Sports, Public Speaking, and Theatre. We try to provide a wholesome learning and growing environment to children, through a holistic approach, followed by a showcase at the end.
