The vision of The Foundation (www.thefoundation.in ) is to see a world free of discrimination of all forms.
I wouldn’t try to improve on the text written by the founder of The Foundation, the actor and activist, Rahul Bose:
“While there are a thousand manifestations of evil on this planet, perhaps the single most instinctive evil is discrimination. We do not like the Other. They make us uncomfortable. So, we differentiate between the young and the old, women and men, the mentally able and the mentally challenged. We treat the poor, the uneducated, the dark-skinned, the transvestites, the 'lower castes', the physically challenged, with contempt. The Foundation has, as its one-point agenda, the endeavor to remove all kinds of discrimination from our lives, our country, and our world. Clearly this is a massive mountain to climb. We will start small, we may even stay small, but the work we will do will be intelligent, focused, uncompromising, consistent and full of love.”
The work done by The Foundation is inspiring, because it creates changes that can be seen in real time: changes in the lives of the kids who benefit from Foundation programs, and changes in the lives of everyone who supports The Foundation.
The charismatic founder, Rahul, is courageous, honest, unflinching in his determination to reveal the dispiriting and iniquitous effects of discrimination, and tireless in his determination to be the change that he wants to see in the world.
