About the Luminary
Harivansh Rai Bachchan Memorial Trust
The Harivansh Rai Bachchan Memorial Trust is Amitabh Bachchan’s newest major philanthropic effort. Named after Amitabh's father, the charitable trust is committed to supporting short term relief and disaster programs, as well as long term humanitarian elevation programs in India. The trust will help develop and improve rural communities while also uplifting young girls across India. The charity's ideals are rooted in the same principals of Amitabh's father, which include aiding humanitarian efforts regardless of race, geography, creed or color. The Bachchan family has long since supported many noble causes, some of which include uplifting the girl child, rural electrification and development, polio awareness, promotion of blood donation and animal welfare. Every penny contributed to the trust will go directly towards the programs the charity supports.
