“Shanta Foundation is unique among similar sized NGO’s that support community-based development primarily through the quality of relationships it has developed with its local staff, it’s participatory culture, high level of board engagement and responsive donor base,”
-David Bartecchi, Village Earth
Our holistic approach to creating bright, sustainable futures
Shanta’s approach begins with the establishment of long-term partnerships that recognize the assets both the village and Shanta bring to the table. Over the course of six-years, entire communities transform from leaning heavily on Shanta for financial support and expertise, to holding the light and leading the way on their own path out of poverty.
