Sambhali Trust

Sambhali Trust's Goals We, being Sambhali Trust, a grassroots women's empowerment non-profit organization in Jodhpur who works almost exclusively with Dalit women and girls, are teaching our members how to become independent and self sustained. We do not offer pure handouts. This concept is what makes our organization and promotion of women's empowerment successful, which is shown through how Sambhali Trust was only created a few years ago and already is affecting the lives of over three hundred.

Teeth-brushing time for the children in Setrawa !
Some of the children from the poorer outlying communities of Setrawa village in Rajsasthan, have no access to water in their houses and so when they come to Sambhali they first wash, shampoo and brush their teeth as part of the daily health and hygiene classes before they sit down to learn Hindi, English and Maths.
