Binu Verma and Ramesh Balasundaram were corporate trainers, but when they got to know each other, they realised that they shared a similar passion — to develop solutions that could create a massive impact on the grass-root level. They both analysed and studied the public school education system in India and what changes are necessary to enable kids to learn better. Soon after, they quit their jobs and set up an NGO — Bal Utsav, in 2009. Bal Utsav’s primary goal was to provide education that would go on to empower them and help them build a better future for themselves. For this, they developed a concept dubbed ‘Museum School’ or ‘A Bridge School’ that was set up inside a popular museum for kids from lower-income families who had stepped out of government schools.
