Meet the Founder
The Force Behind Shaktii
Mrs. Vimala Nandakumar - Chairperson & Mentor
Shaktii was conceived by Mrs. 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.
In her own words, "I feel a particular urgency in ensuring that the girl students have access to quality education and the opportunity for development and realization of their full potential.
As the chairperson of Shaktii I am seeing its stupendous growth. Shaktii started as an After-school programme but now Shaktii has become a movement. More and more people are joining the movement. Their contribution comes in various forms. Funds keep pouring from generous people. Experts from various fields volunteer to conduct sessions. I am eternally grateful to all of them and my team who give their best to the girls."
