Message From the Chairman

Padma Shri Dr. S.C. Manchanda,
Senior Consultant Cardiologist, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital

Diya is not just a foundation for me. It is a way of expressing my gratitude to the society that has given me so much love and respect. I have always felt that it is my duty to give back to the society. While setting up the foundation I met a lot of people who shared my vision for an ideal society and wanted to bring about realistic positive change. I am glad that these people are now part of my team and they treat this foundation as their own. They are proactive people with great will and anunparalleled dedication towards society sharing my responsibilities and working for the betterment of our society. Without their support, we wouldn’t have been successful in changing so many lives.

I am proud about the fact that today Diya India foundation is not just ensuring education for the Underprivileged but it is also empowering many young lives. Our foundation is enabling women to support their families and is ensuring that there are proper sanitation facilities for every individual.
We have been able to provide healthcare to the
Underprivileged and take care of our elders and differently abled. We have achieved a lot till date, but our mission will not be complete till the time we see all faces around us smiling and ensure that nobody loses the courage to fight the adversities of life.
