About the Mehta Family Foundation

The Mehta Family Foundation is an organization dedicated to improving lives through access to education.

The Foundation had a modest beginning in 1998 the year of its creation. Starting then and continuing to today, the Mehta Family Foundation awarded interest free loans to students who had limited resources. These loans were unique in that they required a small monthly payment during the time the students were attending school. Repayment of the loan did not start until the student completed all of their education. These loans gave numerous students the opportunity for education that otherwise was out of their reach.

From that start, the Foundation has grown and expanded its work into higher education capacity building, poverty alleviation, and medical research.

Today we are generating opportunities on two continents.

We continue in our strategy that education is the key to improving the economic outcomes for students and their societies.
