Founder and President
A five minute chat with IDF’s Founder and President Punit Asthana will reveal that he humbly considers himself to be an ordinary man driven by an extraordinary dream - that not a single human being should be deprived of his or her fundamental rights of survival, participation, protection and development. The loss of his father at the age of ten was a turning point for Punit. He set off on a journey to prove his strength of character and fortitude. He established an accomplished advertising agency of his own but realized that his life has another purpose. His instinctual need to help fellow humans reflects in the steady path of progress and growth that IDF has followed since its creation.
