Priti Agarwal

Born in a family where nation and society always came before an individual’s own needs and desires, working for the upliftment of the society came very naturally to Mrs Priti Agarwal, the founder of Gyan Deepak Foundation.

This was the reason that despite being the first female in her traditional Marwari family to earn a professional degree o fB.Tech in Computers and working in L&T Infotech(for a short span), she never felt at ease. After she got married and her daughters were born, she decided to devote her life to serve the destitute.

Education has always the biggest tool to bring about a change in the society.

This is how and why, she started to teach a few kids in the fire exit area of her building. And this is how the deepak of *light of wisdom* was illuminated.
