LAVIE HAS HELPED EDucate 2000 womens in need

SHOBHA TAINWALA

A strong woman with a compassionate heart, Ms. Shobha Tainwala is the Founder and Chief Giver at Lavie, and the person behind the idea of LAVIE CARES. Much more than a business model, LAVIE CARES is a commitment to help women in need. LAVIE CARES’ humble beginning was in 2010.

While in Igatpuri, Ms. Tainwala witnessed the hardships faced by girls, growing up at a constant disadvantage to their brothers. Her solution to the problem was simple, yet revolutionary; to create a for-profit business that was sustainable and not reliant on donations. Ms. Tainwala’s vision soon turned into the simple business idea that provides the powerful foundation for LAVIE CARES.

In its first five years, Lavie was successful in providing for young girls in need. But Ms.Tainwala, having recognized other vital needs during her travels in rural India, realized that LAVIE CARES could be applied to more than children’s education; she wanted to help uplift and improve the lives of all women. She ideated that for every product purchased, Lavie would pledge 10% of its profits to help women in need.

In 2018, Ms. Tainwala released details of her journey, sharing her own amazing story of inspiration, and the power of incorporating ‘giving’ in business. She references other companies and individuals who are motivated and inspired to integrate philanthropy into their professional, as well as personal lives.
