Sinthusha Kandiah is a social entrepreneur, artist, and community organizer. At the age of 19 she founded the organization Divinart Foundation. The goal is to empower individuals and women who are often overlooked by society by helping to meet the needs of marginalized folks who need our solidarity through art and by working directly with local communities. Her work has included supporting women who have experienced conjugal violence or homelessness, individuals affected by the civil war in Sri Lanka and women living in slums of India. At the same time, she raises awareness of her culture through the use of art (henna) and seeks to inspire many through her work.
