WHO makes up Agastya? Many individuals and groups working together have brought life to the original concept of Agastya. Through the dedication and generosity of others, we have managed to grow and develop into a successful, replicable model. Here you are introduced to Agastya's partners, our trustees and management, our visitors, as well as to our teachers and the children we serve.
Who Benefits from Agastya?
