“And that’s when Fly Higher India came into existence. We didn’t know then that we were going to embark on the most beautiful journey of our lives.”

Vishal Mimani, Founder.

Our Founder – Mr. Vishal Mimani is a man of many interests and talents, yet his kindness is his strongest suit. With the support and encouragement of his dear friend Mr. Preetham Murva, our Founder’s simple hobby of spending time with underprivileged children has developed into Fly Higher India (FHI) which now touches thousands of lives. 

Many years of devoting time and resources to fulfil various needs of the less fortunate children, has helped Vishal obtain an in-depth understanding of their lives, routines, strengths and requirements. He observed how the children craved for human connection more than material gratification. “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.

Once Vishal moved from Kolkata to Bangalore in June 2017, he knew what he had to do. With the right friend Preetham by his side, Fly Higher India started spreading its wings by November 2017. The outstanding feedback from the management of various schools and the enthusiasm of the children was all the fuel they needed to move ahead.

With his ever so cheerful smile Vishal says “They should be able to dream too, to aspire and to face the world confidently. We knew we had to do something; something to empower them and to make their future brighter. To give them wings maybe, wings to fly!”
