Sangeeta Darvekar Charitable Trust was founded in 2003 and since its inception has worked very hard on Oral Cancer Prevention. It has also worked on other projects like having medical camps for the Tribals of Dahanu region. Helping the tribal kids educate and prevent their dropout, lead us to distribute brand new cycles to the students and we have distributed 356 cycles till now in the tribal areas of Dahanu and Talasari Taluka of Palghar district of Maharashtra state in India.
For the tribal students we also conduct sex education lectures in the schools and Quilling workshops. We also give lectures on carer guidance and How to study to this tribal students of various schools.
Our founding goal is ‘Life is too short to just think of ourselves, and if we can do something to our needy brothers and sisters that would really fulfil the purpose to be alive in this world’. Swami Vivekananda had said ‘The best way to serve and seek God is to serve the needy, feed the hungry, help the fallen and friendless, irrespective of caste or creed.’
In our selfless journey we need your help to fulfil our dreams of serving the mankind, either the noble soul, with the body stricken with cancer, or the downtrodden adivasis, for whom we can extend a helping hand so that they become self reliant and a responsible and productive citizen of India.
For creating a mass awareness on the dangers of tobacco habit we made a documentary titled "Tobacco Kills” that highlights the problems of Tobacco Consumption. We have priced it nominally Rs 50/- and have kept this VCD/DVD freely duplicable. We are distributing it throughout India and throughout the world. We also conduct regular lectures, camps, TV shows on Mouth Cancer Awareness and have "Mouth cancer detection center" and "Tobacco de-addiction center".
