ANITA CHOUDHRIE MBE
Founder & Director
Ever since she first supported local campaigns as a student in India, Anita Choudhrie has been deeply passionate about charitable work. While studying at Delhi University, Anita became increasingly aware of the hardships that those outside of our vision and environment face, and she decided that she wanted to make a difference.
As a consequence, she has dedicated much of her life to philanthropy, culminating in her founding Path to Success in 2005. Anita aims to inspire and encourage people to take responsibility in helping others, and teaching those in need to help themselves while embracing the values of tradition and multiculturalism.
Anita’s work has changed lives across the UK, and in India, and she has received several awards for her philanthropy.
