Deepastambha Charitable Trust, India

As we know, human beings are social animals & hold certain responsibilities towards our Mother Earth, society & all other living/non-living elements. However, in this competitive world today, we have lost our basic “Social Sense”. Integrating this Social Sense in each individual is of utmost importance to create a better society for tomorrow & make our world a better place. Hence;
“Knowing is not enough...We must apply.
Willingness is not enough...We must do.”
Hence, Deepastambha Charitable Trust was founded in year 2008 with this thought of changing perspectives of people from complaining to cooperation. The willingness to change & 2 hours a week devotion to make this change is what brought a many together. They kept their structure simple & made it accessible for anybody who wishes to explore her/his ideas towards social work.
"Actions speak louder than words."
Yet, in today's world many leaders just talk about developing environmentally and socially sustainable projects, without actually doing anything about it.
So, in 2008, a small group of dynamic and socially aware youngsters decided to be the harbingers of change. To facilitate their dreams, they founded the social organization -Deepastambha. Deepastambha means "the pillar of light". These youngsters decided that they will bring the light of change, in our socially unaware darkness. They wanted to change the society's mindset from 'complaining' to 'cooperation'.
This platform is dedicated to social work, and believes in an "all inclusive policy". So naturally, this NGO is not affiliated to any language, caste, religion, or political party. The people working here have come forward with an honest intention of making their humble efforts and contributing their squirrel's share in the wholesome betterment of society.
These devoted volunteers have been consistently working hard and religiously contributing a minimum of 2-hours-per-week, since 2008.
