Founder at Samarpan Foundation
Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India
Samarpan Foundation is a national non-profit and Indian public charity trust, which engages in social services and human welfare activities. It has been established by Shri Prakash Chaudhary, who laid the foundation of this institution on 19 January 2017, to enhance the dignity and wellbeing of socially and economically weaker people.
The mission of Samarpan is to develop innovative, sustainable and reusable rural community-based models of self-learning that exploit the child’s natural curiosity and ability to explore, discover and learn, supported by guides, rather than teachers. These models will be the catalyst for bringing last mile connectivity to the transformation of aided rural schools in partnership with government and private institutions with the ultimate objective of reaching undernourished children across the country.
The vision of Samarpan is to build communities in rural India and bring learning joy to underprivileged children. This will enable children to realize their full potential to become independent and socially responsible citizens, who can hold their own on a global scale, without touching their community roots.

Our foundation is keenly working to progressively build schools in rural areas to improve such conditions. Its main goal is to help people for their welfare.
For the past 3 years, the journey of this establishment has been something like this: Being an institution new, it initially faced many difficulties. Being a self-funded organization, there was a shortage in resources. Due to lack of resources it was not able to reach the targeted people. Contacting people in rural areas was difficult as there is a lack of education. The hard work of the Foundation was not getting enough results. But as time went on, the hard work of the institute started paying off. The foundation is mainly focused on promoting e-learning so that people from rural areas can also use this education without any additional resources. More and more people were trained for skill development through e-learning. People started taking interest in the event and participated as volunteers. Volunteers started spreading awareness throughout rural areas which helped people more often.
Today, this foundation has made more than 100 women self-dependent under the SAKSHAM program, more than 2500 youth have been trained under the Youth Life-Skills Development Program, we have more than 200 children under the RTE Admitted to schools for free education. It also cured people’s depression due to the Corona epidemic and motivated them for their future goals.
