about saath

Fueled by the promise to nurture aspirations and turn them into realities, SAATH has become a collective journey.

What once seemed a mere dream shared among eleven social work students in 2004, has since evolved into an inspiring narrative of hope and transformation. Together, we embarked on a humble endeavor, dedicated to uplifting the women and children of marginalized communities. Little did we know the profound ripple effect that would cause, echoing through the corridors of time.

Was it fate guiding our steps towards purpose? Undoubtedly so.

In 2006, amidst the synergy of our collective endeavor, a new dawn emerged, and SAATH was officially engraved.

Today, SAATH stands as a testament to the power of unity, where hands entwine and hearts intertwine in a symphony of genuine transformation. It is a story etched with the shared experiences and triumphs of the very communities we strive to empower.

In this journey, every victory, every milestone is a mark to the determined human spirit and the boundless potential of collective action. As we continue to inscribe the chapters of our story, we remain steadfast in our commitment to uplift, inspire, and ignite hope in the hearts of those we are connected to.
