About Shanti Bhavan Children’s Project

Shanti Bhavan has been in existence for nearly 27 years and has been profiled on the Discovery Channel, ABC World News, NPR, Glamour Magazine’s “Get Schooled” video series, and in books and periodicals, such as Thomas Friedman’s The World Is Flat and the New York Times. In 2017, the four-part Netflix Original Documentary series Daughters of Destiny featured Shanti Bhavan.

Shanti Bhavan serves children of the lowest caste. All the children in the program hail from socio-economically depressed areas of India and are mainly from the “untouchable,” or Dalit, communities. The mission of Shanti Bhavan is to empower children from India’s lowest socioeconomic class to break the cycle of generational poverty through education, leadership, and compassion. Each child is provided full tuition and room and board while attending school. Shanti Bhavan means “haven of peace,” and the school truly is a haven for students from prekindergarten to twelfth grade. They receive a world-class education in a safe and nurturing environment.

Shanti Bhavan operates on the core values of compassion, integrity, and excellence. We seek individuals who are passionate about social justice and who bring a collaborative and innovative spirit to their work. Our team thrives on mutual respect and continuous improvement, and we believe in creating an inclusive environment that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve. If you are a mission-driven individual looking to make a tangible difference, we welcome you to join our team in fostering a more equitable future.
