Trustee Thoughts

‘SANSKAR’’ is my dream project. Through 'SANSKAR', I want to contribute to the society in a manner which can transform the future generations of men & women enriched with honesty and sound knowledge, saturated with love and faith that possess the immense strength of conviction and belief. 'SPARSHA is registered as a Charitable Trust in India, which is completely dedicated towards the complete development of the underprivileged children who have enormous potential but are deprived of opportunity and facilities.

Family or society, whether it is of a village or city; I have observed that to change the face of the country, we require a wise, daring and responsible person. 

Till the time we don’t create a troop of such kind of people who can take over the various positions in the country and prove the usefulness and dignity of the post, all our attempts will be wasted. We will not get satisfactory results in any of the fields. Via 'SPARSHA', we will try to form that troop. If we succeed, then the children of your tomorrow will get a future, on which they could proudly say that they are living a cheerful and contented life.

Dr. Sachin Jadhav

SCT was started by Mr. Sachin Jadhav in June2000, after witnessing one too many cases of a poor patient being denied the opportunity for life-saving healthcare due to the lack of funds. Mr Sachin Jadhav was driven by the belief that every human being ought to have access to medical treatment that could potentially save their lives – and socioeconomic background should NOT be a barrier to this.

It is with this vision that the Trust undertakes a host of activities. While performing free or low-cost Health Facilities is the Trust’s main thrust, it also provides the following services for the financially weak sections of our society.

He himself is one of India’s foremost surgeons. His dedication and passion to work is unparalleled, a fact that is attested by his 95% success rate and the devotion he has earned among the patient community.
