A little more about Sambhali Trust. Thank you for having trust in our work!


Sambhali Trust is proud to associate as a Non Governmental Organization member with Vishwa Yuvak Kendra, Delhi. http://www.vykonline.org/


We were invited by CAG Chapter in Jaipur, India for a meeting related to aims provided below. Our volunteers Lilli L. and Sarah G. represented Sambhali Trust at the event.
- convincing young people to go voting this year, "cause India deserves better".
- discuss about things that are wrong in India (Violence-especially against women, corruption, inequality, education).


Today we were fortunate to give 35 sewing machines to the women and girls participants of our Vocational Training programs so that they can become financial independent. Now they can also work from home. The day was endorsed by H'ble Member of Legislature Assembly Ms. Suryakanta Vyas from Sursagar, Jodhpur, Rajasthan. Ms. Vyas is landmark in politics and women empowerment for decades. Photo credit to 'Sambhali Press' our volunteer E. Camley. Thank you to Sonja, Matthew, Christa, Barbara and Anna for the sewing machines.
