Working towards


The Sarvodaya Parivar Trust was established in 1968 with a noble mission to uplift the most impoverished residents of the hilly village of PINDVAL and its surrounding areas in the Dharampur and Kaprada talukas, located 50 kilometers inland from Valsad in South Gujarat, India. This trust is duly registered under the Public Charitable Trust Act as number 578/Valsad. Donations made to the trust are eligible for exemption under Section 80G of the Income Tax Act.

The inspiration behind the Trust’s formation draws from the teachings and principles of revered figures such as Mahatma Gandhi, Vinoba Bhave, Ravishankar Maharaj, Jugatramkaka, Pujya Mota, and others who advocated the concept of Sarvodaya, which translates to the “welfare of all.”

The foundation of the trust was laid by four devoted Gandhians and Sarvodaya workers: Dr. Navneetbhai Fojdar, Kum. Kantaben, Kum. Harvilasben (affectionately known as HARISHCHANDRA), and Shri Kantibhai Shah. These individuals dedicated their entire lives to serving and uplifting the impoverished tribal population of the Dharampur-Kaprada region, drawing their inspiration from the philosophies of Mahatma Gandhi and Vinoba Bhave.

Their work was guided by a profound concept known as “GANDHI’S TAVIJ,” which was articulated by Mahatma Gandhi himself. He emphasized that in moments of frustration, disillusionment, or when one’s wealth and strength lead to arrogance, it is essential to turn one’s attention to the most destitute among us – those who, despite their desire to work for their livelihoods, find themselves without opportunities or employment. These marginalized individuals endure extreme poverty and face various disadvantages, including illiteracy, malnutrition, lack of clothing, and inadequate shelter. Gandhi’s wisdom urged people to ponder how they could be of assistance to these underprivileged individuals. By channeling their thoughts and actions positively towards helping such individuals, one could find liberation from frustration, disparities, and egotism.
