Born and raised in Dorangala Tehsil of District Gurdaspur in Punjab, Smt. Shanti Devi was a simple yet a very upright and righteous God-fearing homemaker.
She always worked hard towards the betterment of local environment through creating awareness amongst local citizens. She was a great advocate for women empowerment, social justice and their education.
Despite all odds, she continued her stride to achieve her goals through limited scope and resources that she had. She always believed that charity begins at home, and thus, began her crusade from her home, her neighbourhood. She inculcated the spirit of similar welfare for the society in her children.
This has resulted into the existence of Shanti Foundation.
