Founder and History

The working and development process started as soon as the First Foundation Day celebration of the organization on August 15th, 2020 was over. The year 2020 which was marked as a blockade in the development of constructive platforms due to the outbreak of COVID-19 allowed the Founders of Aequitas Victoria Foundation to open this platform on the very Independence Day of the nation (India). Initially, the Journal was planned to be opened at the National Level but later on, due to overwhelming support and love from all the members of the Board of Advisors as well as from the Official members, the Managing Committee decided to launch this Journal at the International Level.
