About Us

OUR VISION

To empower future generations by facilitating models of change that significantly enhance a child’s development and strengthen the communities in which they live.

OUR FOCUS

Our work is centered around two key areas:
Education & Community Development

EDUCATION

About Us

We believe that education is a means to create a stable foundation, through which a child can establish a strong sense of self and unlock possibilities. To achieve our goal of holistic child development, we support educational ventures that are rooted in:

HEALTH

Mental, emotional and physical health being an integral part of education

LIFE SKILLS

Learning essential life skills during the early development phase to help a child succeed later in life, both personally and professionally.

We also ensure that the following pillars are integrated in the programs and organisations that we support:

HUMAN VALUES

Equality • Compassion • Integrity • Resilience • Conscious consumption

CULTURE

Art • Aesthetics • Music • Sport

DIGITAL INNOVATION

Curiosity • Critical thinking • Problem solving

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

THE IDEAL

Inspired and guided by the words and wisdom of
Rabindranath Tagore

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high

Where knowledge is free

Where the world has not been broken up into fragments

By narrow domestic walls

Where words come out from the depth of truth

Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection

Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way

Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit

Where the mind is led forward by thee

Into ever-widening thought and action

Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

OUR JOURNEY

The foundation was setup in 2006 by the Rai family as a philanthropic endeavour to contribute to our community and country. The work centred around providing financial and emotional support to individuals and institutions tackling pressing social issues.

When CSR was made mandatory in India in 2014, funding in this sector increased, enabling us to focus and broaden the reach of our work. Projects were undertaken across multiple sectors like education, rural development, health and sanitation and capacity building.

Over the years, Bansuri evolved into a foundation that brings a unique blend of developmental and business expertise to the projects, thereby being able to support organisations at an early stage in their journey. Partner organisations benefit from being mentored, and are able to improve their models and efficiency leading to better social impact.

In line with our ideal, we consolidated our efforts in 2020 to focus on two fundamental areas that we believe can truly catalyse and sustain meaningful change in our country – education and community development.
