Yash Srivastava ( Founder & Managing Director )
The mind behind the cause of Shekhar Welfare Foundation is a very young, budding talent, Yash Srivastava, who balances social work perfectly with his academics. A student of JS University and an aspiring civil servant, Mr. Srivastava draws entrepreneurial and philanthropic skills from Ratan Tata. Mr. Srivastava hopes to be of help for social causes and uplifting the ethos of humanity throughout his life. The entire founding group comprises people coming from different walks of life, contributing positively in their own way towards the success of Shekhar Welfare Foundation’s aim of educating the underprivileged and helping them in varied ways.
An organisation headed by youth is surely in the correct direction to reach the fruition of its goals. One such not-for-profit venture is Shekhar Welfare Foundation.
Taking baby steps now after being formed in 2020, Shekhar Welfare Foundation was established with the vision of promoting the spirit of humanity and spreading them to the people who are not so fortunate. This not-for-profit organisation is located in Uttar Pradesh and works across multiple districts; it distributes stationery among children, food packets to hospitals and distributes alms and other essential objects to the people belonging to very vulnerable income backgrounds. With a team of 11 founding/committee members and approximately a group of 40 volunteers, Shekhar Welfare Foundation aspires to get more and more children to study. The organisation conducts outreach programmes, where its members approach the parents and guardians of the students and explain to them the impact education is going to have on these children. Shekhar Welfare Foundation then enrols children in their care and teaches them, following broadly the open-air classroom concept of the famed Shantiniketan model.
Shekhar Welfare Foundation in its maiden year organised a drive to distribute smiles in the form of new clothes to more than 150 people during the festival of lights, and called the programme ‘Mission Paridhan’. The organisation has set forth towards fulfilling its dream of educating the society and spreading awareness and hopes to settle for nothing less.
