Who We Are


Way back in the year 1995 it was realized that natural resources like land, water and forest, which are the assets for providing livelihood, have turned into liabilities due to over-exploitation and gross neglect, causing problems for families dependent upon these resources and worst sufferers being women and children.

Based on aforesaid findings as well as under their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), an initiative was taken by the Vasudha Group of Companies, headed by Capt. V.P. Singh (Retd.), and Dr. Neeraj Kumar (Associate Professor, Xavier Institute) and manned by group of professionals with multidisciplinary background and considerable grass root experience, and decided to form a Society to focus on this gray area to help uplifting the poor families, particularly women and children and to create better livelihood opportunities for them.

Thus, SAHARA MANCH came into existence on 31st March 1995, as a Society (Voluntary Organization) with specific objectives of carrying out Research and implementing Projects aimed at alleviation of poverty and to intervene in areas of social importance, such as education, livelihood, health, nutrition, hygiene, sanitation etc.
