Founder & President

I was born in a simple family in Agra, Uttar Pradesh. Having lost my father at a very early age of ten, I was brought up by my single mother – a visionary and a role model for me. Growing up in extreme hardships where we had to really struggle to earn our living, education for me was a far-fetched idea. The existential fight we fought laid the strong foundation and urge to work for the cause that I am doing today.

I grew up seeing my mother as the only support system in my family, which helped shape my ideas. However, it was not at all easy for my mother, just like every other women in a small place like Agra. I have witnessed the discrimination and exploitation that girls and women in my region go through in every phase of their lives. Although I completed my education at an early age and established an accomplished advertisement firm, I believed that life has some greater purpose set for everyone and for me. I realized it was the service that I wanted to offer to the deprived girls and women in my society.

Indian Dreams Foundation began its journey in the year 2004. I, along with a group of like-minded people from different backgrounds, decided to make a difference in the lives of those less privileged. My passion to help fellow humans reflects in the steady progress and growth that Indian Dreams Foundation has followed since its incorporation as an NGO in 2005.Today, Indian Dreams Foundation works to protect child rights, ensure access to education, health, and elevate women’s dignity. Our organization connects with the underprivileged and the vulnerable with the mission to empower them.

“The change starts with Girls”

Our decade-long efforts to Educate, Improve the Health, and Empower deprived girl child have been hugely appreciated globally, making us the proud recipient of many prestigious awards and honors worldwide.

I am extremely proud that Indian Dreams Foundation received the special Consultative Status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in the year 2013. ECOSOC is the highest status granted by the United Nations to non-governmental organizations globally.
