Community Development

Samriti makes a huge difference in the lives of needy children all over India. WE PROVIDE NEW CLOTHES, NEW SHOES, NEW TOYS, NEW BABY ITEMS AND NEW BOOKS TO FAMILIES

Whom We Help

The idea behind Samriti KIDS is simple. One caring response to one child in the crisis of poverty, with a donation of one new piece of clothing, a pair of shoes, a toy or book of their own. It’s about one gift, to one child at a time that builds hope, self-esteem and an opportunity to succeed. Click here to identify the school where you would like your gifts to reach.

Educate one child for a lifetime.

This is where we identify children who need such support. We then align such children to the donor, who can regularly monitor the education of the child, till he/she is able to stand on their feet.Click here to sponsor a child.

Orphan Children

When a parent loses a job, a rent payment is missed, or medical bills ravage an already tenuous family budget, hundreds of thousands of families face living in homeless shelters, often far from friends and support. The donation of new products fills a critical need and helps homeless shelters direct limited resources to other services they provide. New clothes, brand name sneakers, a warm coat and school supplies mean children can resume their schooling with pride and self-esteem.Click here to sponsor a child.

Donating books to Underprivileged children

By targeting our donations of books and learning products to after-school tutoring programs, or to underprivileged communities, we give new, age-appropriate books to children, many of whom have never owned their own books. They can now share their joy of reading at home with their family and build their reading skills for the future.Click here to send the books.

Hold your own Product Drive

Samiriti normally receives donations in large quantities from retailers and manufacturers; we also welcome donations from product drives held by everyday people and group. There is a feeling of community that can come from personal involvement in helping others, and a drive to collect new product for those in need is an excellent way to achieve this. If you would like to spearhead a product drive among friends, co-workers, or for a community service project, we would be happy to place your donated products in the hands of people who need them most.

We recommend the following need-based drives:
