Sparsha Trust

Our role in Saamuhika Shakti

In the Saamuhika Shakti collective , with the collaborative efforts from government departments and partners, Sparsha Trust aims to work on the educational needs of children from waste-picking families including:
The project is designed to serve the comprehensive development (care, protection, and development) of children aged 0-18 years in 40 slums along with 35 government schools and 35 Anganwadi Centers in Bengaluru.
The intervention will create a strong foundational learning and child-friendly environment in the community, schools and Anganwadis with long-term beneficial effects. The Trust also embarks on building a supportive and healthy environment and ecosystem for parents and the community in tending to the development of the children.

What we do?

Sparsha Trust, founded in 2005 is a registered charitable Trust with a vision to create a society free of exploitation of children, where young kids are supported to discover their potential and given opportunities for comprehensive development. The Trust has been working in the four main areas –
The Trust has built two childcare institutions for underprivileged children and operates 48 mobile creches for children of construction workers, which have nurtured more than 13,000 and 1500 children respectively, catering to their nutritional, educational, skill-related, physical and moral needs. With an objective to create a child-friendly infrastructure along with teachers’ training & community engagement, the Trust adopted and supported 11 model schools and 170 model Anganwadis. The Trust also focuses on the skill development of children, youth, and women, and the nutritional development of lactating and pregnant women.

Meet our Waste Entrepreneurs

Our Waste Entrepreneurs (WEs) have played a crucial role in our distinctive endeavour to establish the Circular Textile Waste Management (CTWM) model in 8 wards of Bengaluru. Their courage in taking the first steps to engage with this model has been pivotal in our journey towards “Closing the Loop on Textile Waste”. Collectively, our 8 WEs have successfully diverted approximately 130,000 kg of post-consumer textile waste from ending up in landfills between March 2023 and November 2023.
