This site has been set up by Vikas Sutaria a close friend of Nawang. Nawang and Vikas studied together in school and have been very close friends since then.
The inspiration for the web-site in Vikas’s words is :
“After having spent many hours over many years in deep debate and discussions, Nawang and I had our dreams. All through, one thing that bound us together was an urge to ”make a difference”
The objective of this site is to provide, using the Internet, staple food to chronically hungry Indians so as to enable them to survive, learn and work.
