Our efforts have already touched the lives of a million people in India across its villages and town.


Selenine Group is essentially committed towards philanthropic and impact based philanthropy. Under PurposeFirst™ Philanthropy promoting impact, purpose and large scale societal development form the basic elements. Our focus is also towards  gender equity and Women Demographic Upliftment through our continued under PurposeFirst™ segment.

We are also committed to make major investments in areas of the society such as healthcare, basic nutrition, water treatment, childcare, minimum wage programs  to name a few - with direct investment plans that impact the grassroots with a purpose. 

To meet this end, we have some of the most promising projects and local business team managers who are doing revolutionary work in off-grid local communities in India, Africa and Latin America.

Building Efficient Entrepreneurship

Rural Entrepreneurship



Selenine Foundation is working on the development of Women Entrepreneurship in Rural towns and off-grid communities in India and Latin America. We provide local communities in India increased access of products and technologies like mobile and internet connectivity, carbon-free cookstoves, solar lanterns and clean water panels. 

Selenine Foundation is honing local women talent and entrepreneurs to develop, market and expand each service/product in their communities, where profits of running the business are retained by them. 

This not only benefits the women entrepreneurs but also their families in securing financial stability. 

Research shows that women are better stewards of capital – investing 90% of their income back into their families and communities – which translates into greater access to nutritious food, education, healthcare and increased economic activity.
