Meet the Founder
The Force Behind Shaktii
Shaktii was conceived by Ms. Vimala Nandakumar in 2015 as a direct outcome of her imperative to create a model for meaningful engagement of students in learning and self-development, as well as her years of work as a Principal and Teacher in India and abroad.
Ms. Nandakumar is inspired by the life of her mother and the lack of opportunities her mother faced due to social realities, despite all the intellectual potential she possessed.
Ms. Nandakumar feels a particular urgency in ensuring that girl students have access to quality education and the opportunity for development and realisation of their potential.
