Over the years and through its varied and timely interventions, Samvedana has nurtured a potent ecosystem that adds value to all involved - be it children/youth from extreme poverty, their families, or volunteers from privileged sections! It’s their great satisfaction to have this number constantly grow over the years from 30 children to over 2 lakh at present!

Samvedana to me isn’t a mere entity, but a soul of thousands of lives knit together with a thread of compassion. That’s why, I am fortunate to view and perceive the same things with a different eye from the rest.

 

We initiated Samvedana in 2003, and as the journey continued, more and more lives touched my soul. I learnt, unlearnt and came close to experiencing the meaning of words like – privileged and compassion, and unravelled the same tone of the antonyms – give and take.

 

Despite witnessing their unfortunate destinies and pain, I still clearly see the shine of happiness live in each one of them! Fogged, yet, a ray of sun does sparkle.

If you have a purpose, means will follow.

- Mrs. Janki Vasant

While India is undergoing radical changes, Mrs. Janki Vasant believes that the personal choices made by the citizens would lead us to either more greed, isolation, and suffering or more love, compassion, and happiness.

Life changed for her at an early age due to being one of the passenger hostages of the Panam flight hijacked in Karachi in 1986. This incident brought her close to the real values of life, taught her what really matters in life or actually things that really DON’T matter in life!

“If you have a purpose, means will follow” –  with this philosophy she has dedicated her life to the under-privileged, eventually working towards modifying lives and environments.

Her compassion was first channelized back in 2001 when Gujarat was destroyed post-earthquake. Then, she volunteered in the overall coordination of an earthquake shelter, where over 20,000 earthquake victims stayed and thrived for 2 months. A passionate, deep-seeded trust that education empowers drives her to reach out to the children.

With a Motto - ‘Not just education, but quality education is the right of every child’, she founded Samvedana in 2003, a platform to create opportunities and interdependence through inclusive synergy. Her area of focus is strengthening the public education system, infant nourishment – early care, and skill training for the integrated development of socially and economically deprived children, youth, and women.

Being a constant learner is what constantly evolves her, last September she was at Stanford University for a non-profit management course on a full scholarship. She received the most prestigious National Honour, ‘ Nari Shakti Puraskar 2016’, by President of India at Rashtrapati Bhavan on this International women’s day.

None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful.
