Founder Trustee and Mentor

Kalyani Ghosh

Kalyani Ghosh was the biggest inspiration behind setting up Kalyani Animal Welfare Foundation. She dedicated her entire life's savings and a majority of her pension for the sake of animal welfare. A scholar and a beloved teacher, she combined head and heart in her own inimitable way, stepping out for those in distress. In the twilight of her life, when she could have lived comfortably after a lifetime of hard work, she sacrificed even necessities and lived almost a Spartan life for the sake of her beloved four-legged babies.
