Brave Souls Foundation and​ Rural Development Council​, the first awardees of ​G​uideStar India’s Platinum Seal based ​on our upgraded ​ certification pro​g​ramme consisting of a comprehensive application process through a capacity building framework, followed by an assessment rubric of 7 key pillars for exemplary transparency and public accountability.

Brave Souls Foundation
In 2021, Shaheen Malik​, ​after rising from a personal experience of an acid attack, founded Brave Souls Foundation​ to provide holistic support to acid attack survivors. The organization offers medical intervention, therapy, skill development, legal aid, and more, aiming to help survivors rebuild their lives. Shaheen’s primary motivation for starting the foundation was to bridge the unmet gaps in support for acid attack survivors. She recognised the absence of comprehensive assistance that survivors needed and decided to fill that void.

​Shaheen ji, says “We cannot change what happened in the past, but we can surely help in creating a better and more hopeful future for the survivors.”
