Founded by Dr Rajesh Mehta and his better half Ms Saloni Mehta, in May 2010, Tagore Foundation is the work of the love of two exemplary individuals to build for a cause they believe in. Dr. Rajesh Mehta, Diplomat & Educationist and his wife Ms Saloni Mehta started Tagore Foundation for the empowerment of the youth and women of the country. The foundation is a culmination of their belief that no young person should be deprived of the right to education because of his or her economic position.
Ever since its inception, Tagore Foundation has tirelessly worked towards its mission of enabling young people in India to improve their lives and communities through education and civic engagement. The foundation carries it’s work through organizing various workshops and events as part of its outreach programs.
Amongst these, the Indo- Afro Meet, Commonwealth Meet, Career Day helped in building the spirit of community and solidarity. Other programs like Self Development Program at Manav Mandir Gurukul, skill development courses, art exhibitions for aspiring women artists, art and career and health and fitness weeks, are all engineered to build the confidence and employability of the youth.
The Foundation enables young individuals to enhance their communication and language skills by providing language training or communication workshops. Photography workshops are also held. Recently, Tagore’s 150th birth anniversary celebration was held with great enthusiasm and dedication by the foundation.
The Tagore Foundation has also worked for several charitable and social causes. In the month of November 2020, the foundation in one of their outreach projects collaborated with Mukul Madhav
Foundation to distribute around 500 food grain kits, masks and sanitary napkins to the needy in the far Doda and Kishtwar area in the borders areas of Jammu and Kashmir
In the future, the foundation wishes to carry forward it’s exemplary work. The founders plan to do as much as they can to inculcate skills in the women & youth of the country so that they become self sufficient and live and work with dignity.
