Haimanti Sen

Founder

Junoon Foundation, India
Haimanti Sen, a 23-year-old woman from Mumbai decided to change the fate of underprivileged children by providing them free education. Haimanti like many others wondered if the children loitering near the train stations ever went to school. Upon inquiring she realised that while some have been to schools for a short duration, many others did not even know what a school is. Determined to make a change, Sen took it upon herself to educate the children and equip them with the necessary skills to help them get enrolled into one. Today, Haimanti Sen runs a unique ‘school’ atop the Kandivali station skywalk where she teaches 15 kids. Not only that but to provide a holistic learning experience for these neglected children, Sen recently founded an NGO, Junoon, which strives to provide such children with an environment where they can grow to live up to their full potential.
