Story behind YATAN
YATAN came into being with a group of individuals and organisations coming together to make a meaningful social change. Ms. Shalini Kapoor, founder and President of YATAN initiated her work at grass root level with children of construction workers in Gurgaon. Shalini, who is a teacher by profession, believes that -
“ Education should not be privilege . Education is the right of every child. “ With this aim in mind Yatan started its first centre in Kapasehra Village in 2015.
