Saksham Trust is a National award-winning NGO founded in 2003 by Mr Dipendra Manocha and Ms Rummi K. Seth. We believe that every person with visual impairment and low vision deserves the best chance for a bright future and we work to make sure they have these opportunities to thrive throughout their life. To turn this vision into a reality, we run programmes in the field of inclusive education, assistive technology, accessible books and cultural inclusion.
17 years ago our Founders, Mr. Dipendra Manocha and Ms. Rummi K. Seth were driven to set up Saksham Trust with a belief that persons with visual impairment or low vision can do everything with only one change – the way things are done.
This powerful belief has since then led Saksham Trust to establish centres in Delhi, Punjab and Himachal Pradesh. We also run a school in Noida for children with visual impairment and multiple disabilities.
In 2017, our technology-providing arm – Saktek Foundation – was launched to further our belief that power of technology can redefine what persons with disabilities can or cannot do.
To empower communities by creating multiple opportunities and platforms for visually impaired persons for their sustainable social upliftment. We believe in their potential to be significant contributors in India’s growth story.
A sensitized and motivated society that acknowledges the value of interdependence and appreciates the abilities of persons with disabilities and willingly provides equal opportunities for all.
