What We Do

The problems that plague us today – from Gender Inequality to Unemployment and Environmental to Poverty and Education –are interconnected, complex and urgent. At Astaabrata India Foundation, we ask what can we do to solve them?

The problems cannot be solved with the same thinking that created them, Einstein had once said. Definitely not with ignorance. What we need is a new outlook, a new resolve and a new generation – to look at them with a different perspective – and ask the very same question – what can we do to solve this? These approaches need to bring together the novel alliances between the present and future leaders – between the authorities and a people – to look at the current world in new light. That is why we bring a multi-disciplinary approach to advancing in public interest.

All solutions, however, have a fountainhead – Our future leaders. Our future leaders are students, young men and women, who acknowledge these issues, are keen on learning, and passionate to change and bring about a transformation in the world as we see it.

Unless the baton is passed from yesterday to today – the tomorrow will remain unchanged and isolated. Our current leaders, therefore, are the stalwarts from various segments – Bureaucracy, Legislature, Judiciary, Corporate, Media, Sports and Creative fields – who have worked in their own right in correcting these issues.

Across sectors, our volunteers, interns and associates gain critical skills to solve complex problems. They learn to think deeply and broadly about critical issues and the impact policies can have on people, institutions and markets.

We look at empowering our
youth, women, organisations and communities
in Knowledge,in Skills and in Opportunities
so they work in public interest, starting with their
own selves.

So, we welcome you to be part of this change making process. We are inviting our youth to be part of the nation building – by first building upon themselves and then by building on the society
