About Founder

Anahita Khanna

The young and dynamic Anahita Khanna , a Chandigarh girl and a student of Jai Hind College, Mumbai , grew up in a family where non-profit leadership and volunteerism were a part of her daily life .Imbued with a sense of responsibility , Anahita decided to step out of the cocoon of her comfort zone to infuse fresh dynamism into those causes that she truly believed in .

Deeply influenced by great thinkers and philosophers, the one quote that she closely relates to her life is “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

Anahita was always an academic achiever who has been involved in assisting her father in his business. Her keen business acumen, high emotional quotient and unparalled ingenuity at strategizing sound methodologies for ensuring the highest standards, earned her the reputation of being a leader who her peer group and subordinates looked upto.

from Past Rotary International President, Mr. Rajendra K. Saboo


The Rotary Foundation of The Rotary International Club has named Anahita Khanna as a Paul Harris Fellow in appreciation of tangible and significant assistance given for the furtherance of better understanding and friendship relations among peoples of the world. The title was presented to her by Mr. Rajendra K. Saboo, Rotary International President (1991-92); Trustee, The Rotary Foundation (1992-98); Director, Rotary International (1981-83).


The Covid-19 pandemic has struck the world order with a body blow like maybe never before. Mankind has been inflicted with the devastation of both life and livelihood. The poor and the downtrodden have witnessed severe stress just short of their annihilation. Thus, the needs and requirements of containment pockets in Chandigarh need our attention.

Rtn. AP Singh

Past President Rotary Association, Chandigarh

I am hugely impressed with the zeal Anahita has to serve the community at such a young age. She has the urge to make a difference in the lives of those who are not as privileged as her. The idea of giving back to the society has struck her early in her life when most of those her age are busy in making a career and service to the society is the last thing on their minds. Anahita, through her Foundation, has associated with us at Rotary Club Chandigarh to contribute in different projects. I wish her more power to give.


Resident Manager

We are extremely grateful to the Anahita Khanna Foundation for supporting the basic needs of the residents of the Senior Citizen Home Sector 15-D, Chandigarh.
All 30 of our residents are receiving a monthly care package containing items ranging from toiletries to tea , sugar etc. Anahita, not only gives packages but also spends quality time talking with the elderly, making them have a feeling of belonging.
The residents join me in wishing Anahita all the very best !

Mr Ramesh Lama

I was diagnosed with complete renal failure by the doctors in my hometown, Nepal. This is when I came to Chandigarh for my treatment and was introduced to AKF by my employer. I am extremely grateful to the foundation for their support through my dialysis and kidney transplant. The Foundation also helped me get an immediate transplant which otherwise could have taken months of waiting. Their constant followups with my health, have helped me in my recovery for which I am very thankful to the Anahita and her family.
