About Us

10% of the world's population has one or the other "Special Needs". Many of them don't end up joining the mainstream workforce. We believe with that - with the right kind of support - they can. This journey starts in early childhood.

Our vision is to increase human potential by unlocking this 10% of the world's workforce. We are a team of doers who have set out on this mission. This is what gets us out of bed every morning. 

Daffodil health is a one-stop solution that offers expert-guided care journeys for families of children with special needs. Our platform frees up time for the parents by eliminating ambiguity and confusion while improving service outcomes. Our data-first approach and software backbone allows us to offer standardized services at affordable prices.
