Hyderabad-based Sahara, as its name denotes, offers support to the poor and needy located in the region. Since 1988, the NGO has been providing assistance in the areas of elderly care, women and community empowerment, education, health, environment, agriculture, and rural development.

Sahara achieves its objective of 'Let Us Extend a Helping Hand’ through the following programs:

  • Vocational Trainings: Vocational skills and employability potential training in areas like spoken English, computer basics, office assistant, beautician courses, tailoring, embroidery, etc. are provided to young women and school and college dropouts. After the training is completed, they are provided with free placement services. During the year, 67 candidates benefitted from this program.
  • Elderly Care: Destitute and uncared for elderly citizens are supported every month for their livelihood with provisions, nutrition, toiletries, health checkups and other supplies including cash, through the ‘Adopt a Destitute Aged’ program. Over 50 such elderly citizens were supported during the year. Awareness was created on care for the elderly and their quality of life among youth by conducting awareness talks and various campaigns. Special occasions like World Elders Day are celebrated and games and cultural programs are organized for the elderly.
  • Children: Sponsorship – Sahara supports children belonging to vulnerable families, especially semi-orphan, orphan, and poor girl children in continuing their school education by providing them with supplies of nutrition, toiletries, school uniforms, dresses, tuition fees, educational material, supplies for personal and family needs, healthcare and emergency needs. In FY17, students benefitted from the sponsorship. Child Rights – Children’s clubs are formed in villages to fight for child rights. Sahara also organizes health camps for children, women and elderly which benefits over 100 patients yearly.
  • Environment Protection: To conserve all life forms, water and soil, and ensure a habitable environment for future generations, rainwater recharge and recycling model units are constructed in several villages in Telangana. Under the ‘Grow More Trees’ campaign, tree plantation is done at schools, houses and fields which is taken care of by students, youth and women.
