Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Vidya Mandir Dharavi, Mumbai, India

Circumstances, coincidence, or through a divine plan, these young professionals landed up in Dharavi--and stuck with it! Often working long hours, organising and teaching courses late into the night or early in the morning, they would stretch their days to accommodate their full time jobs and their heart’s desire to be of service. Kudos to them!
