Nikita Ketkar, the founder and CEO of Masoom, had long been interested in the night schools that serve students who must work during the days. In 2006, Nikita and six researchers undertook a research project that revealed that the night schools needed improved resources and infrastructure to fulfill their missions. Nikita formed Masoom to address those problems.
Masoom’s vision is to empower, strengthen and transform night schools to ensure youth learn better and earn better. Masoom’s mission is to enable night school students to achieve their full potential through educational and policy support leading to better skills and job opportunities.
