Project Prerepana

NR Foundation believes appropriate opportunities and guidance can remove the disparity within the large populace of our country. The Foundation is committed to make a small effort towards bridging this gap with Swami Vivekananda Youth Movement as its implementing partner.

The team commenced work in 2011, in seven slums of Mysore. Aim was and is to create opportunities to empower and inspire the disadvantaged to support themselves and collectively serve to uplift their community.
