What if 12,500 engineers committed suicide every year?
What if doctors earned average Rs. 1,666 a month?
What if teachers were forced to travel to cities and turn themselves into cheap labor?
Would you say there was something fundamentally wrong with the system?
This is the story of a quarter billion farmers & artisans in India.
We believe in a better future.
And we’re determined to create it.

Mohan (Shah Rukh Khan), a project manager who is employed with NASA, travels to India to take his aunt along with him. Little does he know that this journey will change his life forever! The contrast between the highly developed workspace at NASA, which has been at the forefront of advances in space research, and his village back home in India, which is at the crossroads of development.
Mohan’s simple quest becomes the journey that every one of us goes through.
Inspired by journeys of change at UoC, we connect competent corporate employees and university students to amazing places (mostly their hometowns, or their present place of work/study), to work alongside hardworking farmers and artisans to build a prosperous nation.
We have come this far, in the city in search of good education, work and opportunities. In this journey towards self-development, prosperity and personal growth, have we forgotten to give back to society?
Imagine, if given the opportunity to do good and do well, how would this journey look like?
