How was indigrow conceived?
Kshama - I grew up in India, but 16 years, 5 countries and 4 jobs later, I now live in Singapore, with my South African husband.
When we found out I was pregnant, I realised that my child was going to be half South African, half Indian, born in Singapore and would probably live in many other countries.
I wanted to share with my child the India I grew up in - a relatable, contemporary India - because ROOTS, you know?
I called upon my bestie who is a passionate early childhood development(ECD) expert. Together we embarked on creating an Indian universe of ECD tools that could help my child grow with India. Hence the name, Indigrow.
The logo stands for well rounded, colourful fun - that's us!
