Ms. Samina Jamal - Partner BHIS Bhopal
“Our intentions create our reality”, these beautiful and most suited words from Wayne Dyer sum up my journey which took off around 15 years ago with KKEL. Hard work, perseverance and immense faith in Lina’s vision and philosophy facilitated to cross all obstacles. As per the definition of ‘entrepreneurship’ it is an activity of setting up a business, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit, but I never intended to set up a business and with my little interest in finance my focus was never to earn money and lead a life of extravagance and grandeur. A naïve who wanted to become a contributor took a plunge into an unknown zone with honest intentions and passion for children which eventually turned out to be so called business though education can and should never be treated as business as its core purpose. Being a teacher and an accidental entrepreneur I wish to lead a purposeful life touching human souls, especially children and justify my existence on this planet.

Ms. Jasmine Gandhi - Partner BHIS Noida
I began my journey back in 2005 and it has been a truly fulfilling experience. I have had the opportunity to take forward Lina Asher's vision along with my passion for education starting with Kangaroo Kids and progressing to billabong high international school. I always dream of doing something to give back to society since I was student at Lucknow University until we collaborated and founded Kangaroo Kids, Noida. From a small group of students in 2005 to more than a 1000 today, I've grown stronger with the support of my team and mentors.
Over the years we expanded and I finally took a step towards a cause which is very close to my heart - inclusive education. We set up a centre for children with special needs called Sanchetna, within the same campus. Being at the helm of all the three wings in Noida, each day has been a great learning experience
