We were nearing the end of our three month program at Said Business School, Oxford, when at one of our brainstorming sessions, we had come up with the idea of an alumni association, the first of its kind that would join to support social initiatives in India. 
After the completion of the course in June, by December we had the organization up and running. Today, we support 2 projects, one a sustainable housing project for India's rural poor and the second, a ToiletRUn mobile application that maps the usable toilets in India.
