Sangeeta Darvekar Charitable Trust (SDCT) was founded in 2003 and since its inception has worked on Oral Cancer Prevention in the areas covered under Palghar district. Its efforts have been focused on educating people about the dangers of tobacco use and to prevent deaths due to cancer and reduce cancer incidence.

Tribal students in Dahanu Taluka have to travel a distance of 3-5 kilometers daily to reach their school from home. As a result of this long distance travel, many students drop out of the school altogether. In order to reduce this drop out ratio and to encourage students to attend school regularly, SDCT has so far, distributed 356 cycles to tribal students.

SDCT also works on other projects like conducting medical/pediatric camps for the Tribals of Dahanu region, and has started a free computer education center as well. It also runs a Charitable Dental Clinic in Bhayandar East, where thousands of patients are availing dental treatment at concessional fees.

SDCT has made a documentary titled "Tobacco Kills” for creating mass awareness on the dangers of tobacco and its consumption. SDCT also conducts regular lectures and camps in hospitals and makes presentations at conferences and seminars. Dr. Suwas Darvekar, representing SDCT, appears regularly on TV shows as a guest speaker and panelist to create awareness on Mouth Cancer. SDCT also runs a Mouth cancer detection center and Tobacco de-addiction center.

In 2018, SDCT conducted a Sexual Education seminar in presence of 900 students and 25 teachers.
