We, at Sarathi, have been associated with NGOs like "Seva in Action” (http://sevainaction.org) & "Institute for Youth & Development” (http://iyd.org.in) since our very inception. It's our motto, and social responsibility too, to do whatever possible for the welfare of the society. We all understand that the three most important fundamental things that are of utmost importance for any country or society to prosper are education, health care, and infrastructure. We at Sarathi have decided to contribute towards education and empowerment of people with disabilities.
We have been making financial contributions to both the Koramangala based NGOs from time to time. Apart from that we also try to help in many other kinds whatever is possible within our scope.
