About Founder Secretary:
Dr. Benazeer Baig, the Gentle Revolutionary of Bismillah Nagar, Bangalore, is the Founder Secretary of Raza Educational and Social Welfare Society. Her inspiring journey began in 1994. What moved her was the sight of young boys working in factories. Not only were these children deprived of any opportunities to study, the hazardous work environment inflicted terrible damage to their health. Benazeer took upon herself the challenges of eradicating this callous exploitation of children.
