The Sarojini Damodaran Foundation was established in 1999 by SD Shibulal, ( Co-founder and former CEO, Infosys) and Kumari Shibulal, to transform the lives of the underprivileged in the society. With focused interventions in the area of education, health care, organic farming and social welfare, the Foundation has scaled its activities improving the lives of several thousand families across India.

Our Vision

To break the cycle of poverty and transform the lives of the under privileged through focussed interventions.

Founder's Message

The Sarojini Damodaran Foundation (SDF) emerged from a sense of responsibility towards the society. We hoped to ignite a spark in the minds of youngsters that would inspire them to achieve their full potential. With educational scholarships as our primary mission, we later expanded to other causes like cardiac care, pension projects, organic farming and noon-meal schemes amongst others.
Compassion is something I have watched my mother practice when I was a little girl growing up in a village in Ramamangalam in Muvattupuzha, Kerala. Someone would come to our house and ask for food. My mother would either share from her plate or starve to feed another. I made a promise to myself that I would do the same.
It is easier to give away money. What leaves a mark is when one spares the gift of time, inspiration, ideas and above all else, a strong voice to those in need. With the support of all our well-wishers, SDF has been laying the groundwork for a better future.
