What’s the ‘I’ in Tarraqi I Foundation?

‘Tarraqi’ means progress in Urdu, one of the youngest languages in the world that evolved as an amalgamation of three ancient and culturally rich languages – Arabic, Persian and Sanskrit.

The letter ‘I’ holds myriad interpretations. It could refer to self in self reliance and self development. ‘I’ could stand for Intelligence, Innovation, Inspiration. It could also imply Inclusion and Integration – Taraqqi ‘I’ Foundation includes and actively reaches out to marginalised groups irrespective of religion, region or caste. Hence, the core significance of I lies in ‘Insaaniyat’ (Humanity) which includes the universal values of Ikhlaas (sincerity), Ikraam (caring or being hospitable), Itedaal (Balance).

Together these core values form the bedrock of the multi-faceted efforts of Tarraqi ‘I’ Foundation.
