Devika lives in London with her family where she devotes her time to the Savitri Trust. As managing trustee, she has been actively involved in developing the strategic direction of the Trust which since 2001 has primarily funded ambitious community health projects in the rural northeast of India. After a revelatory moment in 2018, Devika has guided the Trust to shift its funding focus from community health to environmental health, supporting organisations and movements that champion the protection and restoration of the natural world for the health and wellbeing of all people.

She is the creative mind behind the Trust’s fundraising events and campaigns and is also a director of The Arts Club in London.
