Sandeep Aggarwal foundation is an initiative started by Sandeep Aggarwal, a serial entrepreneur, angel investor, internet visionary, and philanthropist. His mission is to build an inclusive India by addressing our nation's multifaceted development challenges and contribute to its collective aspirations. Some of the major horizons that Sandeep Aggarwal foundation is focusing on are
Sandeep Aggarwal Foundation is concerned about several elements that we are destroying on our day to day life and not even realizing that we will leave nothing for our next generations. We are not consuming natural resources; we are basically engulfing them by depriving our future generations. Our foundation strongly values the fact that we cannot afford to compromise with the ecological balance that includes flora and fauna, water and our whole environment. So, we are here to create awareness and take some proactive measures in the same lines.
Every kid should get a meaningful life and childhood. But, unfortunately many children of our country are deprived from a healthy environment, quality education, proper healthcare and even parents’ guidance and care. They may be abducted from a well-to-do family, may have got their limbs or organs cut, may spend their whole life begging on streets, and ultimately may die out of malnutrition. Kids irrespective of their gender, get physically, mentally and sexually abused when they are not under parent’s supervision or growing up in an orphanage. We are here to guard the rights of children to survive, develop, and be protected.
Due to the pressure of the patriarchal society and the ego issues of not being able to accept women in power, have given birth to several challenges for women. We have noticed that women are deprived of proper education, not allowed to earn for herself and for her family and being targeted for sex trafficking. Sandeep Aggarwal Foundation has closely observed the pains of many women and we deeply feel that this gender inequality should be erased, so that, every girl and woman should flourish equally in their lives.
We believe that every person comes from different backgrounds, which may or may not provide them with the courage to become an entrepreneur one day. But, if someone wants to become an entrepreneur, several challenges may appear on their way, which can be external or internal barriers. We are here to pave way for all those who want to become an entrepreneur. It can be the guidance for the right framework, funding or mentoring, to support entrepreneurship.
