The-Raahat-Foundation-Team
"Happiness doesn’t result from what we get, but from what we give!"
Inspired by this and with a belief in social transformation by empowering the most vulnerable members of communities: women, youth, and children, Raahat Foundation was founded on June 7, 2017, to offer and extend significant assistance to society.

As the word ‘Raahat’ describes, The Raahat Foundation is an emotion that aims to give peace in different ways to people who deserve it but cannot afford it. The Raahat Foundation’s work encompasses a significant uplifting of the needy. The Raahat Foundation aims to discover, nurture, and promote goodwill and quality of life among the underprivileged.
From monthly educational workshops, supporting HIV-afflicted, old age homes, transgenders, and aging sex workers to helping marginalized women, The Raahat Foundation has worked towards helping them become self-reliant and confident.

Frequent donation drives are also conducted by The Raahat Foundation to distribute supplies to the community’s needy, such as clothing, blankets, food, stationery, books, and so on. During the Covid-19 pandemic, The Raahat Foundation set up a Quarantine center for migrant workers who lost their source of income due to the pandemic. The Raahat Foundation also set up a helpline for women who suffered from domestic violence during the lockdown and made sure they got all the help they needed.

The Raahat Foundation also funds several children’s educations who lost their parents during the pandemic and also provides care for the elderly and abandoned in nursing homes. We at The Raahat Foundation have teamed with medical specialists in Pune and plan to deliver paramedical training to help poor women find work caring for the sick and elderly, allowing them to make a good living and improve their lives.

The Raahat Foundation also has a welcoming heart to transgender individuals and aging sex workers. The Raahat Foundation was aggressively committed to assisting transgenders in obtaining employment and began helping a few transgender kids’ educations in that academic year. What we did in Covid19’s second wave was establishing a Quarantine Center for the poor and needy in Pune. Around twenty-seven Covid patients were helped and returned home pleased and smiling as they were served with shelter, 2 meals, and other necessities.

The Raahat Foundation’s recent and most important project – The RED RIBBON PROJECT focuses on the needs and well-being of HIV-positive women, which is extremely important to them. These HIV-positive women have learned many skills and are now self-sufficient and independent employees. Premium fragranced perfumes have also been one of the most loved products that we have taught to make from scratch along with crocheted products made by women including dining table covers, table runners, placement mats, cutlery covers, bed runners and covers, vanity cases, cloth bags, quilted bed covers, patchwork, coffee table runners and so much more!
Intricate fabric and artistic jewelry are also curated by these women who have skillfully learned to design handmade neckpieces, earrings, and much more, with love! All of these are made from recycled fabrics to help the environment. It also helps in reducing the disposal cost and protects our planet.

The Raahat Foundation aims to spread a wave of happiness, empowerment, and growth in the community!
