Recently Barjis Chohan has launched a social enterprise to empower kids from disadvantaged backgrounds. She strongly believes that a right to good education is an entitlement for all kids. With this in mind, she has set up a not for profit to provide free tuition for kids to give them an equal opportunity to excel in education. A percentage of the profits from this website will be donated to TBI to provide free tuition for a limited number of kids aged between 10 -16 years in South London.
