About Save Sakthi Foundation

The Save Shakti movement was launched by actor VaralaxmiSarathkumar on Women’s Day (8th March) in 2017. Save Shakti was born out of Varalaxmi’s anguish about the rising cases of inappropriate behavior and sexual violence against women in the country. When we first started, we wanted to present a two-point petition. First, empower more women to come forward and complain about sexual harassment. Secondly, to ensure they got swift empathetic remedies. We are not an organization only for women, but also for shakti in all forms. In these 3 years, we have gone from strength to strength to stand up for the righteous cause and protect the interests of all living beings. Save Shakti Foundation is a Registered Charitable Trust with Income Tax Act, 1961 and donations to the Trust qualify for deduction u/s 80G(5)(vi) of the Income Tax Act, 1961.
