Fly Higher (FHI) enables young people from economically disadvantaged backgrounds by empowering them to deal effectively with the challenges of life through 21st-century skill education.
The journey began when our founder Vishal Mimani, during one of his many visits to an orphanage, realized that the children valued his interaction with them a lot more than the material gifts that he had got for them. “I always loved how I was welcomed by grinning kids yelling ‘Vishal Bhaiya!, even before they saw the candies I had brought” recalls Vishal fondly. Our founder then had a thought at that particular moment “Let’s enable them to buy their own candy, Let’s give these children wings, wings to fly. Let’s empower these children for a brighter future”
Immense love for children and a deep interest in making a difference in their lives has developed into an organization named Fly Higher (FHI), which now touches thousands of lives by instilling essential skills required for a better, healthier, and happier life.
