Dev Raturi empowering underprivileged kids through his foundation


Hailing from a small village in Uttarakhand’s Tehri Garhwal district, no one ever thought that Dev Raturi would ever make it big in the world. But the only person sure of it was Dev himself who understood the power of resilience and hardwork. In a decade, he became a name to reckon with in China as an actor and an restauranteur.

But with success and fame, he was keen to give it back to the people of his state. Coming from a humble background and making it big in China, Dev realised how difficult it is to make it on your own without any guidance. Hence, he founded Raturi Foundation in 2021 to empower underprivileged children through education.

“When I grew up, I could not pursue higher education due to financial challenges. We have many talented kids who are not able to study due to these hardships. With Raturi Foundation, our vision is to help all such students support them with their education and be successful in their lives. If it goes well by the blessings of Lord Krishna, we will be contributing 80 percent of our profits to the NGO towards social welfare,” he said in an interview.

Understanding the power of education, the foundation is helping people break the cycle of poverty and help them find their true potential. “We let them explore their true talent by educating them and letting them decide what they want to be,” their website reads.

Raturi Foundation is focussed on three key areas – children’s health, their education and taking care of the elderly. And is keen to bring a positive change in the lives of the people.
