About Founder

Your faith in us can make a difference

An extensive research on the under-privileged areas in Maharashtra led us to concentrate on Kerwadi village in Parbhani district. We noticed that the community here lacked basic necessities of life and education. There is a vast diff erence in willingly observing fast and remaining hungry due to unavailability of food. A notion kept us thinking as to what could be done to help the underprivileged to live a better life. We were clear about our goal- to provide shelter to homeless children, contribute in their upbringing, and help them settle in life by giving them opportunities to build their dreams.
SEDT was inspired from this very thought. Our idea, supported by encouraging people opened the avenues of ‘Dreamland’ which fulfi lled the dreams of hundreds of impoverished children along with their parents and families.
Destitute children are found all over the world; it’s a global problem which is evident in developing or under-developed countries. India is facing this problem and many issues interlinked to it- child labour, traffi cking of girl child, malnourishment of kids, etc.


"Socio-Economic development of the poor and weaker sections of the society, where in people are mobilized for their own empowerment”.


Our mission is to serve the poor and weaker sections of the society and create a empowered community where people in the long run would manage their process of development themselves. The love, respect to everybody, equality, primary care of environment, sustainable development and commitment to democracy embodies the value system of the organization.



SOCIO-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT TRUST is basically a Civil Society Organization engaged in building capacities of poor and marginalized communities prioritizing women and children in the areas of Education, Health, Resource Conservation and Livelihood support.

We are working in Parbhani District (in Gangakhed & Palam blocks) since last 30 years with children.

Here majority people of the community are living in poverty, of which 40% are under BPL. Most of the women of above age 30 are illiterate. Their marginalization in the economic sector is accompanied by their social devaluation that is very disturbing. A systematic bias is evident against women in access to basic resources such as education, health and nutrition. No priority for girl's education and so hundreds of girls are there in villages discontinued from education system. School condition is very disturbing besides introduction of RTE (right to education act). Average 50% children are not learning even after 4-5 years schooling.

We believe in social and cultural inherent strengths and potential of people to bring about social change for development and betterment of life and society at large. And so the pannier of our Development Agenda includes Conscious raising and Capacity Building of Women, Rescue, Rehabilitation and Reintegration of Child Labour, Targeted interventions and HIV prevention programs for Migrant Labour and Commercial Sex Workers. Our paragon activity is “Dream Land”, an Integrated Child Care Centre established at Kerwadi to provide care and support to the destitute and defectors children and preparing them to face the outside world with self confidence and dignity.
