Ms. Shanta’s Humanitarian Approach towards serving the society makes her one-of-a-kind-person
Ms. Shanta began working towards her dream of serving the less privileged in the year 2017. Residing in Uganda, far away from her home in India, her family had concerns about her personal safety. But with determination and encouragement, Apar Foundation was established. “Apar” in Sanskrit means ‘Infinite’.
Today after 5 years with the help of amazing team of volunteers and generous donors, the foundation has served more than 1000000 meals , more 200000 people with free healthcare , distributed 10000 packs of sanitary pads, dig 6 bore wells serving 200 people per village, distributed covid relief food distribution for families especially elderly and PWD where we served 300 tonnes of food items, helped more than 20 children with their education, taught free computer skills to girls in slums, distributed wheelchairs, white canes, among other humanitarian services in various districts in Uganda among other activities.
The foundation takes pride in letting know the world about the impact they have created and that the activity report was published in the international journal of scientific publications. Yet they believe that their real achievements will be counted when they will be able to help mothers with safe births. In most of the rural communities of Uganda, the smile on a child’s face when they see a simple food is filled with joy, and nothing can beat the happiness when an elderly places his/her hands on your head as a gesture of saying thank you.
She says, “As human beings we have immense power and capacity to make lives of others better and brighter and we must take advantage of that magic and make someone smile today”.
