Sachin Foundation Logo

The Sachin Tendulkar Foundation was created to give a platform to bring together people, institutions and resources who are passionate about bringing a social change. The foundation will help us give equal opportunity to children and create a better world for our children.


Who we are

I feel blessed. As a child, I was surrounded by a loving family, friends and mentors. Their support, along with the unconditional love of sports fans worldwide, helped me achieve my dream of playing for India and winning the World Cup for our nation.

The tremendous support I received over the years from all has made me who I am. In my second innings, I want to give back to the nation which I served proudly.

We often speak about making the world a better place for our children. By focussing on children’s health, education and sports – we can create a positive difference to their present and future.

The Foundation is a step in continuing my contribution to society. By working together, we can create a difference. Let’s nurture a billion dreams and let our youth excel.

- Sachin Tendulkar

Partners Speak

Dr. Shajin

MD, DNB, Consultant Pediatrician,
Makunda Christian Leprosy and General Hospital.

We have been partnering with the Sachin Tendulkar foundation since the last two years. It has been a fruitful experience working with the foundation. It all started with a generous grant from the foundation through which we could expand our Neonatal Intensive Care Services. Last year, we were privileged to start the ROP screening services for the premature babies in our NICU. In addition to this, the foundation has been supporting a lot of children who come from poor socio economic strata, with their hospital expenses. We are grateful to the Sachin Tendulkar Foundation for all support and we wish them the best in the coming year.

Mr.G Shiva Ganesh

Chief Trustee,
Inga Health Foundation

Inga Health Foundation carries a privilege of working with Sachin Tendulkar Foundation in its endeavor to provide treatment to deformed kids. While IHF carries the support of several donors, Sachin Tendulkar Foundation has been proactive, in understanding the foundation and its efforts, on a regular basis. Interactions with the team, and more specifically Dr.Anjali Tendulkar, provides the foundation a much needed assessment of its work, and, a platform to improvise its service and objectives. Dr Anjali Tendulkar, being a medical professional, has taken significant interest in understanding the foundation, and her participation in the meeting, has been highly rewarding.

Prof.Dr.Krishna Shama Rao

Trustee & Medical Director,
Inga Health Foundation

We on behalf of Inga Health Foundation, are truly privileged to work alongside with Sachin Tendulkar Foundation, treating children born with birth deformities of the skull and face, free of cost. Our job is that much easier to communicate with Sachin Tendulkar Foundation, as Dr.Anjali Tendulkar is herself an eminent pediatrician . Her deep understanding of the nature of deformities, allows us to communicate and collaborate to high professional standards. I thank Sachin Tendulkar Foundation for all the support.

Dr. Chetana Kumar

Trustee & COO,
Inga Health Foundation

I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the very esteemed Sachin Tendulkar Foundation for giving us an opportunity to collaborate and work with them . It has taken our organization to a different league. It has personally made me feel 10 folds more confident in the work Inga Health Foundation offers to mankind, and, has made me and our surgical team feel proud of the work we do. In simple words " We Must Be doing Something Right " to be under the agesis of Sachin Tendulkar Foundation and deserve their benevolence. Was humbled when Dr.Anjali Tendulkar herself participated in our very first meeting, to understand about Inga Health foundation and its activities. One of the finest gestures i have ever witnessed till date. Truly obliged and privileged.

Mr. Ravindra Karve

Seva Sahayog Foundation & Founder - Vidyarthi Vikas Yojana.

We together have been able to scale up the positive impact on the lives of most deserving students in fulfilling their higher education dreams and helping their families in coming out of a poverty trap.

Dr. Soonu Udani

MD, Medical Director & Head. Critical Care & Emergency Services,
SRCC Children’s Hospital

Sachin Tendulkar Foundation has been supporting poor and needy patients at the SRCC Children’s Hospital for several years. We have utilised these generous funds for critically ill children who have had catastrophic and sudden onset of very serious illness. Parents are unprepared for the enormous financial burden of modern medicine and the combined stress of illness and finance is usually overwhelming. The funds from STF go a long way in alleviating some of this burden. Over a hundred children with complex problems and advanced surgical interventions have benefitted from the generosity of the foundation. We, at the SRCC Children’s hospital are ever grateful for the continuing support of Anjali and Sachin Tendulkar.
