The Sahayak Trust believes that education can transform lives and livelihoods – most of all for the poorest and most disadvantaged. The Sahayak Trust seeks to make relevant education accessible at the doorstep of people, particularly the rural poor. It does so directly or through partners who are working in local communities and share the same vision.
The Sahayak Trust’s work is in rural areas, where 67% of India’s population resides. Of this, over 70 % are dependent on agriculture directly or indirectly. (Agriculture Rural Market Opportunity and Challenges in India Ram Kumar Sahu, Dr. Reshma Shrivastava) The Sahayak Trust has set up an Institute for Rural Education to implement its educational initiatives in rural areas . The institute set up its Vidarbha centre Wardha, Maharashtra in January 2016.
