Shanti Bhavan


Our History

Shanti Bhavan, a non-religious 501(c)(3), is a unique educational model exclusively for children born into India’s lowest social and economic class. We transform children from impoverished communities into professionals in the global marketplace. Our first school was built in Tamil Nadu for children from families that make less than $2.00 a day.

What We Do

Our children were born into slums and huts without running water, electricity, or working toilets. With a Shanti Bhavan education, our children are now being accepted into top 25 universities across India. Our college graduates are working full-time at companies like Amazon, Deloitte, EY, Goldman Sachs, Mercedes Benz, and more. These graduates are now paying it forward, giving 20-50% of their salaries to their families, communities, and other children in need - creating a ripple effect that impacts thousands.
