A non-profit organization based in Shillong, Meghalaya, North East India, Faith Foundation is led by a dedicated team of young women professionals of the Indigenous Khasi tribe, working to ensure the safety of children and adolescents since 2013.It is with great purpose that we are called Faith, ‘FAITH’ means Faith in ourselves, Faith in our dreams, and Faith in the goodness of those with whom we work and partner.
Our organization follows a model of shared leadership and we share a common dream for the children and communities we serve, as well as values that serve to drive our progress. As well as our experience in social development, we are also guided by their local knowledge of the needs of communities that are vulnerable and exploited.
We pride ourselves on being a learning organization, meaning that we are always open to new ideas and opportunities and always reflect on our decisions and actions.
We empower children and adolescents by engaging in life skills and personal safety education in schools, child care institutions, and communities, with the objective of reducing the risk and vulnerability of children and girls to abuse and exploitation.
