It is an innovative idea for poverty alleviation through capability building of the poor. It is ground breaking because it does not believe in charity but believes in the power within every person and unleashes the dreams of the poor by skilling them in the financial capacity needed to fulfil those dreams. It is unique since it is a mobile academy consisting of a customised, full-equipped mini-bus with two trainers. Making education mobile and localised, it makes it accessible and meaningful.
