We create social entrepreneurs.


Isn't Moongalal Ji, a 56 year old farmer selling high quality manure and organic products an entrepreneur?

Is GeetaDevi an entrepreneur, who runs a small self-help group in Uttarakhand and sells her products in Delhi?

Candela Foundation is a collective effort to bring about a change by creating entrepreneurs. Started by IIT Delhi alumni and with technology at the core, we are tackling some of the biggest challenges of our times- Skill and Technology Accessibility.

We are helping farmers with training and technologies. Helping self-help groups with Business, finance and admin trainings. Helping kids with creative ideas and youth with career counselling and communication training.
