Nurturing creativity, curiosity, and community building among underserved youth through making

About

MakerGhat's vision is to support underserved youth in becoming leaders and entrepreneurs who can enable social and economic change in their communities. To support this movement, they create low-cost brick-and-mortar labs that embody a do-it-yourself mindset or culture of 'making'. Through such safe, open, and resourced community spaces, their goal is to spark a cultural shift in who is part of and drives innovation in India and beyond.
