ROOTS is the brain-child of a team of young and visionary techies from the Silicon Valley of India – Bangalore. They have a firm belief in the absolute potential of every kid regardless of what the report card says. Being a part of the revolution in the education system, we believe marks are not the most important entity that can make a student successful; at the same time, enabling to score well is considered as a personal failure by the society. This has led to an increase in the percentage of mental health issues related to depression. It is not a new thing to observe that every year when the results are declared, the news papers are filled with horrifying news of students committing suicide the very next day. Reportedly, about 20% of the students in India suffer from lack of confidence and are susceptible to suicidal thoughts. 9% have reportedly attempted suicide at least once. This alarming data shows that the lack of proper guidance at the right stage of life can be a major reason for a student to not live up to his/her potential, hence leading to extreme cases depression and suicidal tendencies.
