About The Sahayak Trust

 The Sahayak Trust was established to provide support  through education on low cost and sustainable technologies, particularly in the fields of health, agriculture, livelihoods and ecology to economically disadvantaged rural populations. The Trust believes that education can transform lives. Within its limited funds it seeks to make relevant education accessible at the doorstep of people in need of it, helping them to use their own locally available resources. It does so largely through training of partners  who share its belief and are already working effectively in local communities. The Sahayak Trust has set up an Institute for Rural Education, which has a Centre in Wardha. The Sahayak Trust is the Knowledge and Training partner and a growing number of NGOs are Implementing Partners. Much has been achieved already by this model of working.
