A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

We so far...

At Sakshum we are engaged in helping community and creating awareness. Sakshum is growing every moment and making a difference. We keep on posting about Sakshum's activities at our blog, forums and through newsletters. Visit Support us page which also reflects few of our initiatives. Few of our recent activities are:

Adopt A School

Sakshum believes that adopting a unprivileged school is one of the most effective way to improve the quality of education and empowering our next generation with the right mindset and knowledge.

To achieve the same we adopt govt. or slum schools with bare minimum facilities. In our adopted schools we try to improve the quality of Education, Healthcare and infrastrucutre. Due to this initiative around 1000 children are benefited.

Sponsor Child Education

Sakshum is actively working in the area of child education. At present Sakshum volunteers are sponsoring a number of children's educational expenses in Hyderabad.

Sakshum is actively working with India Literacy Program (ILP) to help them improving the quality of education in govt. and slum schools. As a part of this activity Sakshum donated a computer to the Madhapur, Hyderabad branch of ILP.

Adopt A NGO

One of the key idea to start Sakshum was to become an open platform where we not only serve the people in need but become a support system for small groups and NGOs. To put our first step forward in this direction we chose and adopted a rural NGO 'Organization of Rural Development' in Mayurbhanja, Orissa. As a result, Sakshum is now supporting 140 children of this area for a better life!

Eye Care I Care

Sakshum started this project to create awareness among children for their eye care and to have a healthy vision. As a part of this activity Sakshum volunteers goes from school to school (primarily targetting govt and slum schools) and do basic eye screening of students. Those identified with vision problems are then taken to eye hospital for further detailed diagnosis and a treatment is provided free of cost.

Blood Donor Database

Sakshum's online database has 4000+ active blood donors. Every day people in need of blood gets benefited because of our online blood donor system. Sakshum is spreading the word and the database is growing every moment. You can register as a blood donor here.
