Ekta Shakti Foundation was established in 2003 by a group of 10 individuals with diverse expertise. Its focus is on the betterment of women and childr Read moreen. Through its non-profit endeavours, the Foundation is dedicated to the comprehensive growth of children, differently abled individuals, youth, and women. Initially commencing by providing mid-day meals to 18,000 children in Delhi's MCD schools, the organisation has expanded its efforts significantly. Currently, it provides nourishment to approximately 10.47 lakh children daily. Over the years, the Foundation has also taken steps to address the unique needs of special children through the BrahmaShakti Special School, while the Radhika Skill Development Centre encourages women's involvement in the workforce. In alignment with the vision of a more hopeful and compassionate world, Ekta Shakti Foundation strives to enable equitable opportunities and inclusive development for disadvantaged individuals, particularly children, youth, and women. As part of its mission to foster ongoing positive change, the foundation established a state-of-the-art training centre in Begusarai, Bihar in 2018. This centre operates under the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY), facilitated by the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC). Through this initiative, the organisation provided free skill training to 360 students hailing from rural backgrounds. The training not only equipped them with valuable skills but also conferred them with post-training certificates and assistance in finding suitable placements. By placing children, particularly girls, and women at the core of its efforts, the Foundation recognizes their potential to effect transformative changes in their own lives and, consequently, in their families and future generations.


Ekta Shakti Foundation has made an impact across 6 states and 17 districts, touching the lives of over 10 lakh children daily, empowering over 1000 women and youth with skills, and benefiting over 100 differently-abled individuals.

  • Brahmashakti Special School

    In 2006, Ekta Shakti Foundation established Brahmashakti Special School in Matiyala village, Uttam Nagar, beginning with 2 children. The initiative aimed to foster self-reliance and independence among children with special needs. Over time, the school's enrollment grew, attracting parents from distant areas. This led to the establishment of two campuses, currently located in Uttam Nagar and Dwarka, accommodating 45 and 40 students respectively.

Its primary goal is to generate job prospects. The DDU-GKY Centre focuses on providing skills to rural youth, with approximately 550 from Varanasi and Chandauli districts set to be trained by 2023. Ekta Shakti Foundation also established the Begusarai Skill Development Centre under PMKVY, aiming to skill marginalized students, resulting in positive transformations for 360 students by offering training in various fields. This effort brings independence and proficiency to students, enabling them to earn a livelihood. The programme offers free training, skill certificates upon assessment, and placement assistance.
