Where True People Empowerment Begins, But Never Ends

Founder’s message

Mrs. Bilkees I. LatifFounder and President

S.H.E.D. was established in 1983 in the slums of Mumbai at the request of the Dharavi slum community. There was then a ‘Dada’ for every street, and I came across groups of children who were employed in brewing alcohol for them, instead of going to school, lured by a good salary with a free daily lunch! Under the mafia lords in Dharavi, the crime rate was horrendous. To begin with, I held a meeting with over ninety of the Dadas and asked what future they planned for their youth apart from their criminal activities.
