The Foundation

Diya India Foundation


Founded in 2014, Diya India foundation is a development and humanitarian organisation which has been spreading the light of hope across India. The idea was conceived by Padma Shri Dr. S.C. Manchanda who is Senior Consultant Cardiologist at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital. Apart from his professional expertise, he is appreciated for his kindness and generosity.

We are tenaciously working towards building a nation without disparities and empowering the weaker sections of the society. India is a country with an extreme dramatic economic gap and we aim at bridging this gap step by step with our consistent efforts.

The journey to bring change was initiated by a group of doctors, professionals and our exponents. We began with 20 underprivileged children who were deprived of the Right to Education and one determined teacher but it is with the support of our empathizers, today we are currently supporting two schools in the slums of Delhi.

We are focused on not only one or two areas but six different domains namely Aayush, Gurukul, Seva, Jeevan, Samridhi, Parivartan because we believe that a developing nation like India needs overall development to become a world where happiness and equality prevails.
More than 10,000 lives have already been impacted in the last 7 years and we intend to increase these numbers rapidly.
