An Indian by birth, his exemplary academic achievements led to a life of travel , finally leading him to settling in Switzerland. Ankur's life was cut short tragically by incurable cancer, but he left behind a legacy of deep friendships built on his incredible positivity. After his passing on, his friends came together to mourn, and discovered that they all had been indelibly touched by his friendship. As they shared their stories, an idea began to take root - what if the best of what Ankur represented, could be carried forward to do good for others?
The motivations of the association are inspired from the threads of his own story - creating impact by connecting different worlds, using education as a tool for opening up the world of opportunity, and helping others view the world positively against the odds.
