Slum & Rural Innovation Project, is a Storytelling and Technology Education platform in India, dedicated to ignite the curiosity, problem solving capabilities and innovative spirit of kids, youth and women in lower income groups of urban slums and rural communities. Our programs help the participants to envision their potential and learn skills using our hands on STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics) methodology. This empowers them to be a better version of themselves by being life long learners who can not only change their own narrative but also impact the community.
