Founded in 2003, Samvedana is a non-profit organization registered under Bombay Public Trust Act, 1950. We work for the integrated development of slums with a focus on education, nutrition and skill development of socially and economically deprived children, youth and women.
Our main projects are in more than 50 slum communities in the western periphery of the city and 4 villages in the district of Ahmedabad.
Apart from education initiatives, we have also been working for the malnourished children as a partner with the government’s ICDS project. Under this initiative, Samvedana monitors and adds value to 76 aanganwadis. Through our 4 different projects focusing on education, nutrition and skill development today we have touched lives of over 1 lac 25 thousand beneficiaries which include children, youth and women.
Driven by sole passion for development of children, we are constantly striving to fulfill our purpose of sensitizing the society and transforming lives. Samvedana has merely been an initiator. It is the relentless support of our team of volunteers, corporates, professionals which has collectively worked towards bringing about the difference.
Today the world that we live in is highly dynamic, going through radical changes. At Samvedana we are constantly striving to understand the changing needs of our community and adapt to those needs. We strongly believe that by transforming the lives of the underprivileged, our nation will attain holistic development.
