About Us

Janyaa, a 501c(3) organization set up in 2009, focuses on developing creative problem solving skills in rural kids in India. The name, Janyaa, which translates to “life” appropriately fits with the vision of this organization.

As envisioned by founder, Venu Nadella, the kids educated from the principles of Janyaa are empowered to make progressive changes to their immediate communities and can help advance socio-economic state of their country.

  • Janyaa is founded on a key finding “We retain 5% of a lecture, 50% of what we see and hear, 80% of what we experience”
  • Hands-on learning of the concepts & teaching how the concepts are important in real life makes learning fun and excites the imagination.
  • A child understands the concepts better, and also able to retain them longer.
