Anupam's Story

My wife, kids and I moved to the Des Moines area from San Francisco in 2015. Before that we lived in Oregon, India and Australia. 


We've been working with non-profits for years and when I met Sam & Tricia. They laid out their mission of leveling the playing field for youth. This really appealed to me because I too faced many uphill challenges as a young manager in the 90s in the US but my challenges paled in comparison with what refugee kids face, socially, economically, culturally, academically and even playing sports.

Our mission to create the social equity needed to make sure that our kids have the ability to capitalize on the opportunities afforded to all. 

Join us in our mission to make Iowa equitable for all.
