Saucam means Cleanliness or Purity, not only in mind and body but in one’s dealings also (Bhagavat Gita 16.1-3). A couple of years ago the five founders of Saucam had a dream, a dream of an India where every girl child reaches school and completes her basic education. Unfortunately, the girl child has always been neglected, at home, school and at her work place.We at Saucam, strongly feel that an educated girl is the foundation of an educated family, which in turn leads to a self-sufficient and happy family, resulting in happy and content communities.
We derive inspiration from the following quote
“This country will not be a good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a good place for all of us to live in.”
– Theodore Roosevelt
With our stated vision in mind we got together and registered Saucam Foundation, a Non-Governmental Organization with the express intention of helping the girl child get basic school education and sustaining the efforts to ensure completion of this education. While executing our maiden project, we realized that our initiatives at the child level has a corollary and a larger impact on the community and village at large, as the School is an extremely important element in the lives of the villagers.
