Shashi Kochhar 

Shashi has been fostering community connectedness through his Friends of the Children Foundation established in 1998.

Shashi started the group as a way to invest in the future which is children’s health, education and protecting the environment.

Friends of the Children Foundation is a not-for-profit, registered charity that encourages people of all backgrounds to come together and organised community events that also fundraise for places like Monash Health, including the Australia Day community get together and an annual tree planting event.

The Foundation is active in volunteering to deliver meals to people in need through community meals and also its Bread Brigade that picks up bread from bakeries and distributes it to other community groups. Under founder Shashi’s commitment, passion and dedication to the community the Friends of the Children Foundation is an important group in the City of Monash.
