People Behind SAMATHWA

Sustainability, social equality and the environment are now business problems. And corporate leaders can't depend on governments to solve them..

Peter Senge, Founder, Society for Organizational Learning

Inspired by Senge's philosophy, a group of young corporate professionals came together in 2002 to set up Smile Foundation to work with grassroots initiatives for effecting positive changes in the lives of underprivileged children, youth, women, their families and communities. Now More than a project, SAMATHWA is a much larger vision of few experienced professionals, successful business people and intellectual students, being converted into reality, with an aim to contribute towards nation development through innovative ideas by SAMATHWA associates or its workers itself.

Samathwa is managed by a Board of Advisors comprising individuals from diverse backgrounds and expertise. The board is formed for a period of one year and a few independent members of eminence and reputation are nominated each year. Members of this board meet once every quarter.
