Nurturing Students in Need
Jyoti Shanbhag, daughter of Drs. Pramila & Gajanan Shanbhag dedicated her life to helping children in challenging circumstances.
From notable Spelling Bee achievements to mentoring in high school, she expanded her educational journey from MBBS in Bangalore to an MBA in the US.
Her versatile background includes empathy, expertise, and experience in medical companies and modeling.

Beginning with one student, this will exponentially grow through additional personal contributions.
