Talent resides everywhere, opportunity doesn’t. The Karta Initiative is seeking to positively and permanently disrupt this. Ours is a social mobility mission: to transform the futures of bright low-income students from developing and emerging economies. We focus on dismantling barriers of information, exposure, aspirations, and skills to improve admissibility, employability, and ultimately life outcomes for our students as well as their communities. Our work is underpinned by a commitment to social justice, inclusivity, thirst for continuous learning, and rigor.
These threads are woven into an optimistic commitment. A commitment to unravelling the tight knot at the heart of Karta’s mission.
Talent is blind to location, resources, circumstances. Access to opportunity is not. Passionate about changing this through Karta.
Education, exposure and opportunity are all hugely powerful tools in transforming the state of play globally; enacting real change and getting closer to a more equal society. Karta's work is integral to this; connecting the disconnect.
I am energised by the Karta vision of empowering talented young financially disadvantaged Indians.
As a 4th generation person of Indian origin, I benefitted from studying in a world-class university and have seen the ripple effect from these opportunity going back into communities. I am deeply committed to Karta’s mission of the development of young, latent talent.
Global firms, young start-ups, philanthropists, eminent academics, experts, and students, spanning geographies, ages, sectors and experience, are generously putting shoulders to the Karta wheel and contributing vital expertise, knowledge, pro-bono professional skills and financial support.
