"We foster a culture of community service"



The relationship of caring and mutually derived benefits, and the commitment of the Somaiya Group to rural development has led to it playing a vital contributory role in the areas of India's farming and rural communities with which it comes in contact. The activities undertaken benefit the communities in areas of health, education and culture. 

Nareshwadi Learning Centre (NLC) is a classic example of such an initiative. Five hundred children from underprivileged families attend Nareshwadi's schools and live on campus. Ninety percent of them come from the local Warli, Kokani, Katkari and Dodhi tribal communities. Many live in interior villages with no schooling available. The rest are children with single or absent parents, or are from HIV-infected and -affected families. NLC nourishes the physical, intellectual, emotional as well as spiritual development of each child by providing an innovative education, caring home environment and fostering community involvement. NLC is an initiative of the Girivanvasi Education Trust, promoted by the Somaiya Trust. Read more about NLChere. 

Somaiya Vidyavihar also supports "Help A Child" - whose vision is of an India where all young people are able to continue their higher education and excel, regardless of their financial status and background. Read more about it here.
