However, Babu story traces back to the year 1995, when he came to know Jesus as his personal Lord while perusing his early higher education at New Delhi city. Sensing a strong calling to serve, he later decided to obey and follow the path. His first teamwork opportunity was with Campus Crusade and later served 650 underprivileged children as Compassion International Project Manager for few years.
Later in the year 2005, his wife Jyoti Rao joined him in the call and felt the need to serve the unreached and downtrodden communities of North India. They both travelled extensively across the states and found that vast number of little know native now –profits, churches and ministries are unorganized and isolated.
