Sambhav Foundation

Our role in
Saamuhika Shakti

As a part of the Saamuhika Shakti initiative, Sambhav Foundation aims to improve the earning potential of waste pickers by opening up alternative livelihood opportunities to them and their families. This will be done through skill development initiatives and employment support over a three-year engagement period.

What we do

Sambhav Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that works to eliminate social imbalance and empower weaker sections of society with the right infrastructure, education, and means of livelihood. Sambhav provides mentoring and nurturing to individuals and groups to enhance livelihoods in the informal sector, ensuring health and well-being, building skills, and uplifting through employment and entrepreneurship. The foundation drives change for women, youth, and the differently-abled by empowering them with the right knowledge and skills and linking them to sustainable livelihoods.

Activities and impact

Healthcare: Our most important intervention in the past two years, over multiple waves of the COVID-19 pandemic. Sambhav Foundation conducted mega vaccination camps, with over 6,117 vaccinations administered to waste pickers and their families in 10 locations in and around Bengaluru.
Training programs : Training programs had to be moved to Sambhav Foundation’s online learning platform, and this shift to hybrid learning led candidates to embrace technology through our learning apps and also ensured uninterrupted learning.
Working with the waste picker community so very closely has been a one-of-a-kind project experience for Sambhav Foundation, opening the team up to a lot of new learnings and experiences from the lives of waste pickers and their homes. The project has also given us a clearer picture of the aspirations, strengths and weaknesses of waste pickers - helping us to help them better by enabling livelihoods opportunities and providing access to quality healthcare.
