Visamo Kids Foundation Foundation (VKF), an Ahmedabad based NGO, works towards providing free education to poor children coming from underprivileged(under poverty line) families from all over Gujarat.
Visamo, a truly sustainable, fresh, vital and dynamic initiative, started off with 18 underprivileged children from the poorest of the poor families from earth quake affected regions of Gujarat. Since its initiation in 2002, soon after the massive earthquake that shook the whole of Gujarat, VKF has focused on working towards empowering lives by facilitating access to quality education and secured environment to the underprivileged children of Gujarat.
Visamo Kids Foundation is a brainchild of Dr. Manjula Pooja Shroff, Chairperson, Calorx Education & Research Foundation and an edu-preneur, who got the inspiration during the post earthquake relief and rehabilitation work undertaken by Calorx in 2001. The camp that was set up to provide shelter to the families displaced from their homes during the earthquake, generated a lot of symbiotic relationship of Calorx with the local community, government, schools, and the local NGOs.
