About PSF

In Loving Memory

The overriding spirit of the Pratyush Sinha Foundation is the vision of our son Pratyush, whose humanity and caring for the less fortunate, is behind each endeavor of this foundation.


Years ago when I compared the contribution of Bill Gates to an average person, who devoted a certain portion of his salary to helping the less fortunate, his response had jolted me to realization. He said, "Mom if somebody gives up their last piece of bread to the hungry, is their contribution any less than Bill Gates?" We have to do what we can to make our community and this world a better place for our kids.


We are his hands and doing what he would have done.
