A story that is unmatched
Vinayak Lohani’s story can spur anyone up to take up social causes and bring about a change in lives. He completed his B.tech from IIT Kharagpur before working in a software firm for 1 year. He went on to do his MBA from IIM Kolkata. After finishing his MBA, he opted out of placements and went on to start something that would change many many lives for good. It is worthwhile to note that his father served in the I.A.S cadre.

Changing lives forever
Vinayak founded Parivaar in late 2003 with 3 children in a rented apartment, not to mention he barely had any resources to start with. Parivaar was started with the aim of providing high-quality residential program for children from impoverished strata in West Bengal. As of June 2016, there are 1405 resident children at Parivaar. Taking cognizance of his, he was inducted into the task force of Ministry of Women and Child Development. He was one of the very few non-governmental staff included in such a task force.
