SHANTI INDIA was created in 2005 to help the most underprivileged children in Bodhgaya, Bihar, the poorest state of India. In such areas children from humble backgrounds often can't get access to quality education. SHANTI INDIA provides today 430 children from poor families with full-time free education and helps them to pursue their dreams. Children and students of SHANTI INDIA are taught ethical codes of conduct based on solidarity, compassion, tolerance and kindness.

Compassion in action…

« We are all responsible for the world we live in. Each of us can work to make it more human and I have no doubt that we do so by uniting our good wishes. »

—Dominique Valli

For as long as space remains

For as long as sentient beings remain

Until then may I too remain

To dispel the miseries of the world.
