About Us

India won't get better by itself. We must set big goals and hold ourselves accountable every step of the way!

  • About

    We all want India to become a better place, but what we don’t realize is that our nation won’t get better by itself. Our duty as a responsible Indian citizen is to set big goals and hold ourselves accountable for every step towards reaching that way!

    We at Martin Foundation, work in harmony with our vision to reduce poverty, injustice and assist the people in breaking the cycle of poverty and emerging out of it. We work to strengthen democratic values and advance human achievements. We invest in transformative ideas, individuals and institutions.

    We uphold the inherent dignity of all people irrespective of their caste, creed, race, etc. But around India, nearly half of the population is excluded from the political, economic, and social institutions that shape their lives.

  • Approach

    We work at the intersection of philanthropy, technology, and advocacy, using various strategies to achieve progress across all our initiatives.

  • Vision

    Our vision is to reach out to each and every person who is dwindling in poverty and help them emerge out of the poverty cycle by reducing poverty and injustice.

  • Mission

    The mission of Martin Foundation is to reduce poverty and justice, strengthen democratic values, and advance human achievement. We stand besides the minority communities to help them and their families. We work towards our three main missions.

    • Standing with the poor on the front lines of crises.
    • We are dedicated to ensuring every Indian family can meet its educational needs.
    • We are working to create a more notorious, equitable and regenerative food system.

We are grateful on the contributions made from the group on Cyclone Gaja

Cyclone Gaja slithered across the coastal districts of Tamil Nadu as the most powerful and most damaging calamity on record to hit the delta region. It floated gradually over the land devastating pieces of the Nagapattinam, Cuddalore, Thanjavur, Tiruvarur, Pudukottai, Dindigul, Trichy, Karur, Sivagangai, Ramnad, and Karaikal causing extraordinary flooding and harm in the delta regions.
