The founders of Illuminate India, Brie Mahar and Kristi Werre have a long standing passion for the underprivileged in India. Brie Mahar was born and adopted from Calcutta, India and raised in the U.S. She returned to India in the spring of 2011 to adopt a daughter of her own. After witnessing the needs firsthand she realized how simple, affordable and tangible it was to help. Kristi Werre has been involved in international humanitarian aid work since 1992. She has volunteered with several organizations globally. Kristi and her husband have adopted three children from Calcutta, India. In 2011, Brie and Kristi were in India at the same time and discovered they each had a desire to help the impoverished children of India. Shortly after the trip, Illuminate India was born.
