What is SAMATOL? Sa - Samta (Equality), Ma - Mamta (Affection), To - Tohfa (Reward), L - Lakshya (Goal). Samatol also means BALANCE in Marathi. The Samatol Foundation was registered in 2006, under the Social Institution Registration Act, 1860 G.B.B.S.D. 2528/06 and The Public Charitable Trust Act, 1950, F-31920 at Mumbai. Samatol Foundation is a Non-Profit Social Organization, which works for the upliftment and rehabilitation of runaway children. They run away from their homes for various psychological or socio-economic reasons. We strive to reunite them with their families.
To bring back deprived children into the mainstream
Samatol is a national organization established in 2004, in order to bring these socially backward and deprived children into the mainstream of the society, molding them into being responsible citizens of India. The Samatol Foundation is proud to announce that it has been successful in making a positive impact on the lives of over 10,000 children so far, and has created an equal number of happy families. Samatol firmly believes that a child's right can only be well protected within the confines of their own family.
Basic rights of the children
In Samatol, the basic rights of the children are always taken into consideration. They are a priority to us and are taken care of properly until they are united with their families. We have taken on the responsibility of preventing children from getting on the wrong track in life, which would ruin their own lives, at the stake of India's future. Samatol Foundation functions at Mumbai C.S.T., Dadar, Kurla, Thane and Kalyan Junctions within Mumbai and sub-Mumbai. It also extends its working to Pune and Bhusaval railway stations outside Mumbai.
In the near future, Samatol also wishes to work on stations like Amravati, Aurangabad, Nanded, Miraj (Sangli), etc. Currently we have a team of volunteers working at Railway Stations. Whilst observing the platforms, they pick out the children within the range of 6-17 years of age. These children have lost their identity in the huge canvas of the city, but our volunteers are on hand to rescue them. At the moment, there are many karyakartas (कार्यकर्ता) working for Samatol.
