OUR FOUNDER

Shanti Ravi ji works for educating people of Mumbai port, trust slum and making them literate also aims to reduce criminal activities in the area through the medium of education.

The area was deprived of al the basic necessities and facilities like water, electricity, school, garbage collection, roads etc. there also used to exist a lot of crime as obtaining these things was a constant struggle, Shanti realized that fi the future generation is not educated then it will continue to indulge in criminal activities. Initially she contacted a number of NGO’s to support and start interventions in the area but no one responded positively as lot of fear used to exists In their minds. She also used to spoke few gang leaders to cease their activities but they did not relent. Hence, she decided to unite the women in the area and form their mandal to work for the betterment of the area using the medium of education.
