You make a living by what you get,
but you make a life by what you give
It all started with 2 friends who as students way back in 2001 wanted to bring in the much needed change in the local govt. schools by upgrading their educational infrastructure and teaching amenities to benefit the children.
That marks the birth of Spandana.
The two then decided to set up a library in one of the govt. schools as Spandna’s first activity with no external monetary support. They collected books from like- minded individuals and set up the library with 125 books of all genres.
A humble beginning in 2001 with one school has now grown to 4 govt schools with various programs and a dozen core members contributing towards the noble cause.
Two things remain the same with Spandana then and now. It still operates with no external monetary aids with the core members contributing a percentage of their salary and secondly the programs remain dedicated towards benefiting the children.
Spandana NGO Trust has a strong Advisory team consisting of experts from different walks of life like NGO, Education, Healthcare, Legal, Finance etc. to guide and lead the Trustee team on all critical initiatives.
