In one year this concept attract many more and the group evolved as 'Team-3D" a Nationally Registered Not for Profit Organization in November 2016. We strive to promote facts demystify myths and help create a healthier, bolder and more positive 'Gen Next'.

We achieve this through Interactive workshops, fact files and workbooks, a documentary, a flash mob and a street play. We have also branched out to focus on older age groups to raise awareness about common health issues faced by people and bust myths and misconceptions surrounding them. We have over 200 volunteers and have organized more than 50 for students. Since 2019 we are a regular part of the Med-Orient program organized as per the MCI (now NMC) rules, for orienting medical students as they enter first year of MBBS.
