WE INSPIRE WOMEN & CHILDREN
TO DREAM BEYOND

We empower women and children through community programs to elevate health and livelihood in India & the US.

We are heartbroken by the current situation in India and are proud of the work we have been able to do on the ground thus far. Thank you for your generous support during this time. We are committed to serving the over 1,400 rural communities we serve in Gujarat, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. We are focused on both the current immediate need, preparing for a possible third wave, and on the long-term relief efforts that will be needed. Please join us in these critical efforts to support India in this time of need. Your continued support is deeply appreciated and critically important in this time of need. Thank you.

I can't believe how much this incredible team has grown! Got a bit emotional at the end of our first (of many) Desai Foundation Global Learn & Share Meeting. Had several members share what they are focused on and learned so many hidden talents of this team! (It's clear we may have to have our own cooking channel or something!) It is the honor of my life to lead this team with Samir Desai, Mittal Gohil & Yati Desai. ❤❤❤ ... See MoreSee Less

A whopping 83% of students who menstruate feel ashamed when leaving the classroom with period products, according to the States of the Period 2021 study conducted by @periodmovement and @shethinx. This is just one of the barriers students face when it comes to being able to have positive period experiences. This cycle of shame needs to end so that all menstruating students can shift their full focus on their education. Find out more about our mission to fight period stigma by following the link in our bio! .#menstrualequity #menstruation #menstrualhealth #periodsarenormal #womenshealth #periodequity #desaifoundation ...
