Rishabh Shah

Founder & President

Dear Readers,
The 21st century belongs to global citizens who are holistically developed and not just academically bent. It is an era where peace and tranquility are two quintessential cornerstones for universal collaboration and success. However, the defining element for a successful transition from the century fraught with wars to one of world wide harmony will be the "perception" that the young people have towards the problems they face especially the ones that carry the baggage of the past.

5 years ago, when I started this organisation, the idea was simple- it was to bridge the gap between people having different mindsets. To that end, we started the Indian International Model United Nations (IIMUN), a tool which equips school students to grasp the gremlins of the local, national and international ecosystem of which they will be leaders in their own capacities.
Today, we have under our own banner (IIMUN)- 108 conferences in as many cities across the globe with over 3200 committees being simulated and a total of 200,000 students who have directly participated in them. We have been blessed in the last few years to have received the constant support of all stakeholders- schools, managements, academicians, parents and most importantly the students. I look forward to receiving your continued cooperation as we endeavour to shape the perceptions of tomorrows leaders, today.
Warm Regards,
Rishabh Shah
Founder and President,
