since opening our first Shobha Salon in 2001, we have been committed to furthering the lives of south asian women & children.
as a company, we have sponsored the college education of ten women (through sarada kalayan bhandar) & have contributed to school-on-wheels (which converts
old buses into mobile classrooms in mumbai & pune for street children), offering them an alternative to begging & teaching them that education is their
way out of poverty.
Shobha's Home for Girls & Women is dedicated to Shobha Tummala's grandparents. with a $100,000 (usd) contribution, the home supports 60 girls & young women that range from pre-school to college age.
the home is run by two retired professors who value education & are making sure that the orphans are cared for & are able to attend school. it is our hope that these early philanthropic steps will lay the groundwork for a full-fledged non-profit organization in the years to come.
programs provided at the orphanage include:
here at Shobha we are dedicated to empowering women through employment & education. as a result we focus on various philanthropic organizations that focus on educational causes for women & children. to help us with our effort, please donate here.
