  Samparc - Help a child.... build her future....

Cause: To empower the poor, needy children and disadvantaged community people to maximize their potential and help them become independent and self-reliant.

Profile: SAMPARC is the link between the child in need... and you. SAMPARC started in the year 1990 by Shri Amitkumar Banerjee and Mrs. Lata Pande with like minded friends and professionals with the view of working towards a new dimension with reference to its children's village activities for orphan and the destitute. It grew with a new concept that all children need to grow under community umbrella. Ultimately SAMPARC children's village concept has been accepted by Government of India and as a recognition, SAMPARC has been awarded the NATIONAL CHILD WELFARE AWARD by the Govt of India in 1997-98.

SAMPARC believes educational and cultural change in the mind of people and community can change the society for positive growth. Deprived and disadvantaged children should be considered as an important area to build better future. So it is necessary to invest for their growth and development of families and human resources is the ultimate aim of the program.
