Collectively, we work towards the common goal of Pyara Kerketta Foundation. Our team is completely composed by tribal people whose every member believes strongly in the ADIVASIDOM and the empowering power of knowledge. Every day, we unite in doing our best to bridge the gap between those who have access to knowledge opportunity, and those who do not.
