A small set of people with passion got together to do something for the rural poor. These set of people could have gone on with their lives given their current income and lifestyle. But the hearth inside them burnt and they were adamant about giving back something to the society in their lifetime. There were a host of hurdles but they took one hurdle at a time and made their way. Though there is a long way still to go the goal is getting closer with each passing day.
