Finding ways to educate the poor and forgotten children of India held a special place in Nina's heart. Since her own life was cut tragically short by cancer, her husband Dr. Ashok Kumar Malhotra, along with his sons Raj and Ravi, created the Ninash Foundation to perpetuate Nina's goals and values, especially her passionate support for the performing arts and literacy throughout the world.




Nina's professional life at SUNY Oneonta and her personal life in Oneonta was dedicated to cultural interchange between diverse groups, especially between India and the USA. She assisted people of India by bringing them to the USA, educating them in the ways of America, and finding proper employment for them.




The Ninash Foundation is a 501(c) (3) charitable organization, formed in 1996 in memory of Nina Judith Malhotra. Nina was a pre-kindergarten teacher, a social worker and a counselor. She taught Hindi at the State University of New York at Oneonta and helped found and direct the SUNY Intersession and Semester in India Programs.





















Since 1997, Ashok and his wife Linda have formed a great team by developing the foundation together.
