Charitable Projects to Make a Difference

Our name comes from the Tamil word for “friend”: nanban

At Nanban Foundation, we believe there is truth in the well-known proverb, “A friend in need is a friend indeed.” As such, we have prioritized service and made it our mission to reach out to those in need. 

Our team of friends and family strives to provide free, high-quality financial education for all. We function with the support of volunteers united by one common goal: knowledge sharing. Embracing online education, we invite people of all backgrounds to attend our free quarterly webinars in order to learn GK Level-1 and Level-2 comprehensive investment strategies. Equipped with these tools, students can begin their journey toward financial freedom. 

Besides financial education, we serve others through charity projects focused on improving the living conditions of underprivileged communities in both India and the US. We are committed to providing more than basic necessities, establishing community kitchens and skills-based workshops to ensure long-term growth and prosperity in the areas we conduct our work. In addition, we provide timely aid in the face of unprecedented calamities, such as the COVID-19 pandemic and Cyclone Nivar. With the help of over a thousand dedicated volunteers working tirelessly on the ground, we aim to effect lasting change.

Our work is primarily devoted to tackling issues in the following areas: 

  • Covid-19 & Hunger Relief
  • Women Empowerment
  • Rural Empowerment: Techno Initiatives 
  • Biodiversity Conservation: Green India
  • Education
