The Foundation

The Purnima Foundation is a registered non-profit charitable trust that serves as a resource for people, organizations, and institutions in the Republic of India. Our goals and objectives are to –
  • Reduce poverty and injustice
  • Promote equality in educational opportunities across different economic strata
  • Reduce human suffering through access to quality health care
  • Create and support local programs for environmental protection
  • Promote gender equality and provide opportunities for empowering women
  • Foster human advancement
The driving principle behind our work is that through equality and fairness come justice, opportunity, social stability, and community advancement. The Purnima Foundation supports attempts at meeting this challenge by working closely with people and organizations at the local level where such problems are present.
