Mrs. Paranjpe (or Rajani Tai as she is fondly called) founded Door Step School along with her ex-student Bina Lashkari, out of her passion for children and education. As a professional Social Worker she realized that Education was the single most important factor that could bring about a change in the lower strata of society. With this goal in mind she founded the Door Step School which today has become a 750+ member strong organization.
