Journey from a child labour to a speaker at the parliament
I joined Sparsha when I was merely a 9-year kid. From being a helper at marriage halls to a Karnataka speaker at the parliament, I have walked the path of thorns and stones. Sparsha has taught me, fed me and even given a chance to fulfil my dream of IAS.

The power of a never giving up spirit
I lost my husband and had to tend to 3 young kids when I had only completed one monthcourse of core employability skills at Sparsha Trust. I was broken and lost but never gave up.The skills I gained at Sparsha opened a new door to the world of work.

I met Gopi nearly 5 years ago. His infectious smile, persistence and “can do” spirit got me curious enough to investigate the possibility of sponsoring/supporting Sparsha. Once I visited Makaldhaama and spent time with the children, my heart and soul were both convinced that I needed to be a part of this
