Our Story

Passionate About Inspiring Others

Anshul Shah, a 16-year-old high school student founded the organization in the summer vacation of class 10. Since its inception, he has been working hard to build his passion to real-life success and to bring a change in people's lives. 


Even as a child he had been an ardent reader. But for him, a book is not just a piece of paper with fine writing, instead, it is a valuable piece of knowledge with the potential to bring a real life change. His mystical journey into the environment began with the book "The Healing Power Of Forests". After reading the book, he found his understanding, perception, and personality change up from the core. He found the Miyawaki Method so powerful that he founded Vanmitra, an organization to inspire others to feel the change he felt in himself.
