About the NGO

Swadhar's Founder Meenakshi Apte was a professor and HOD of Family & Child Welfare in TISS. She witnessed many cases of domestic violence against women. She feels that ignorance amongst women is the main cause of their suffering so in order to have someplace where they can be guided, counseled and made aware of their rights, she and other like-minded women came together and Swadhar was started.

Swadhar's mission is to provide services like education, training, guidance, and counseling to underprivileged women and children in order to ensure the protection of their rights, self-reliance, and empowerment.They work towards empowering women and girls through counseling, awareness & education. The organization also conducts reading and overall development classes for children from underprivileged families. Their ray of hope programs works with children who are HIV infected or children whose parents are infected. Groceries, medicines, and nutrition are provided to them.

In 2015, Sanjivani Hingne was awarded the VatsalyaPuraskar by the Akhil Brahmin MadhyavartiSanstha Rehabilitation of children of sex workers. In 2016, Nayana Deshmukh was awarded the Excellence in work by the Lokmanyanagar senior citizens club and the Teachers day award by the Lions Club Care & protection of Children.
