Every child deserves a chance to learn, a chance to dream, and the best shot at life!

We believe human talent is evenly distributed across socioeconomic demographics; opportunity to develop that talent is not. The Siri Foundation aims to help bridge the gap. We provide opportunities for life-changing education to students in rural India, and require their accountability and mentorship back to others in their communities in exchange. We believe in the ‘hand up’ and not ‘hand-out’ charitable model, and welcome all who share our beliefs in fundamental human dignity, equality of opportunity and social accountability to join us in our joyful work.
