The Headway Foundation was started in 2016 by Mrs.Raghavi Senthilkumar who herself is a polio victim. With sheer determination, she completed Engineering and Masters, started her career as HR and pursued as a multi-faceted managerial person. During the time, she has helped many differently-abled employees get jobs. Later she started the NGO, The Headway Foundation through which she does many welfare activities for the disabled community with a team of young volunteers.
