Dedicated to education, health care, upliftment, animal welfare, and above all, empowerment, 2019 marks the completion of a decade of the foundation’s service to society. The foundation fulfils its vision by allocating resources to impactful and socially relevant projects.

It is a loyal patron to Apne Aap Women's Collective (AAWC), an NGO involved in grassroot work to prevent second-generation sex work. Sahachari’s support enables AAWC to operate a day program offering meals, tuitions and a night shelter for up to 20 vulnerable children.

Recently, Sahachari funded a visit of the world’s first mobile rail hospital, Lifeline Express, to Korba, Chhattisgarh, at which 40 doctors performed 2,000 free operations for patients from the underserved local tribe.
