Dinesh Shahra Foundation is a non-profit, humanist organization committed to the cause of empowerment, sustainable development and creation of value based social structure. Our agenda is to work as a catalyst in bringing about positive change in the lives of millions of underprivileged farmers and other marginalized sections of the society. DSF also promotes sustainable development vis-a-vis haphazard growth by popularizing environmental friendly technologies that are in harmony with nature and moral fabric of our society.

“Through this partnership with Women on Wings, we want to enable more women to earn their own income that will give them greater financial means to improve their livelihoods. Economic independence for women means more children can go to school, more meals per day for their families and communities, and an overall better standard of living for them and future generations”
