Welcome to Shanti Sahyog
Following Gandhi's maxim, "An ounce of practice is better than a ton of theory",
Shanti Sahyog was registered in Delhi in 1992 as an All-India NGO. Committed to the practical application
of Gandhian values in society today, Shanti Sahyog, is dedicated to serving the underprivileged in the field
of Education, Health and Women Empowerment. Continuing Gandhi's vision of positive peace, we promote nonviolent
conflict resolution, peace education, citizen diplomacy and peace programs in India and abroad. Currently active
in 17 urban slums in new Delhi (Kalkaji/Govindpuri area), The Shanti Sahyog Team of 43, works with the slum dwellers
to help them strive towards a better quality of life. The aim is to tackle problems at a grass roots level and
find sustainable solutions. This is in line with Gandhi's concept of God as 'Daridra Narayana' -
worship of God through service of the poor. Shanti Sahyog Community Welfare Program, especially
the Literacy Project with emphasis on Girl Child Education has achieved significant landmarks.
We need your help to continue with and expand the work that we are doing and invite you to
