Shalni Arora is a trustee of the British Asian Trust and Chair of the Finance and risk committee. BATS is a unique organisation led and driven by the South Asian diaspora and by a powerful belief that traditional approaches to philanthropy and development will not alone, solve the challenges of the region.
Our programmes tackle problems and inequalities in the areas of education, livelihoods, mental health, anti-trafficking, and conservation.
They work in partnership with others to design and deliver programmes, raise funds, convene partnerships that combine new social finance tools, philanthropy, and technology to deliver impact at scale. They focus on outcomes driven programmes, so that we are delivering and measuring real change for the communities we serve.
