Shanti Bhavan is a residential school exclusively for children born into India's lowest socioeconomic class. We provide high-quality education from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade to help break the generational cycle of poverty.
Sponsorship is one of the best ways to support Shanti Bhavan's children! When you become a sponsor, you are paired with a child in need. You receive a short biography of your child when your sponsorship begins and three individualized updates every year, many of which include videos, letters, and more.

We measure our impact based on where our students are five years after they finish the Shanti Bhavan program. Our graduates are authors, computer scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, teachers, and more.
Daughters of Destiny
See firsthand the impact Shanti Bhavan makes on the lives of our children. Academy Award-winning director Vanessa Roth chronicles seven years in the lives of five young Shanti Bhavan women.
Each year, Shanti Bhavan is forced to turn away hundreds of children because one school simply cannot take in all of them. With your help, we will construct a second school that will change the lives of hundreds of new children.
