Dhara Shakti Foundation was founded by Devika Shekhawat with the aim to be a catalyst and force multiplier for collective action to achieve sustainable and equitable development. This is not just an organisation, it is a force to bring together people from all aspects of life who are eager to bring about a positive change – to support the underprivileged, to empower youth and women, and to uplift each other through dialogue and collaboration.
We are on a journey to work collaboratively to invest in the lives of children, youth, and women to build the healthy environments they need to thrive and empower them to create lasting change in their own lives and communities.
The foundation was set up with the objective of providing opportunities, support, and mentorship to aspiring minds around the Indian subcontinent. The foundation believes in a collaborative approach and seeks to leverage a strategic network effect to scale collective impact and share best practices. The main focus areas are Sustainable Development Goals 4, 5, 6 and 11 ; Quality Education, Gender Equality, Clean Water, and Sanitation and to Promote Sustainability in Cities and Communities.
