Our Story

It all began with an idea to  share the power of modern technology,. Kinspire wanted to focus on using this technology in order to ensure that every child has access to a well-rounded schooling. This was, of course, easier said than done. One of the biggest challenges we faced in our initial planning was the fact that in these underprivileged communities, education was a luxury; simply proclaiming that education would be the solution was far from enough.

We wanted to go beyond just providing materials; we wanted to teach, to have a direct connection with these students. And so began our Skype tutoring sessions: a platform that not only allowed for volunteers from across the world to help out, but also create a bond with each and every kid on the other side of the call. We established contact with Gracious Paradise Orphanage in the outskirts of Hyderabad, India, and their enthusiasm only fueled our passion.

Our enthusiastic team foresees a successful future ahead for Kinspire. We work tirelessly today so that the children in need will have a better tomorrow. Our goal is to create many more partnerships with a network of orphanages across India. We will ensure that even as we expand, our current personal and detail-oriented approach is maintained.

Kinspire aims to make a life-altering difference in every child’s education plan. We hope to be recognized as a career counselor, life coach, and best friend for students of all backgrounds, ages, and abilities. In order to touch more children’s lives, we’ll need more helping hands. We want to see Kinspire’s team build into a large body of volunteers all over the world.

I see Kinspire as the next frontrunner at the intersection of education, technology, and social impact.
