Sarthak Educational Trust

Sarthak Educational Trust was started in year 2008. In 2004 while practising as a dentist, Dr. Aggarwal started losing his vision due to Macular Degeneration of Retina, a non-treatable concern. During this period he realized the agony with which a PwD's goes through due to constraints such as non-inclusive environment and limited access to resources and opportunities. With God’s grace and support from various relevant persons he first got himself trained in screen readers and other software to manage and execute his daily activities through Computers, and gradually started with skilling and employment of visually impaired candidates in Medical Transcription in Delhi.
Thus, he envisioned a platform where this dependency can be cured. With this thought, in 2008 Dr. Aggarwal started with one centre in Delhi and gradually expanded to 17 centers across the nation. Through its presence in Delhi(3), Chandigarh, Gurugram, Ludhiana, Lucknow, Jaipur(2), Hyderabad, Mumbai, Pune, Ambala, Bhopal, Kolkata, Ghaziabad and Faridabad with the support of National Skill Development Corporation, Tech Mahindra Foundation, Capgemini India Private Limited, Mahindra Finance and various other agencies.
Through its Early Intervention and Inclusive Education initiative Sarthak has rehabilitated 825+ and 425+ children with disability respectively. And, with Sarthak Skill Development Centres, has successfully trained 11,000 PwD's candidates in the sectors of Tourism & Hospitality, Organized Retail, and IT-ITes. Furthermore, 100+ job fairs have been organized in 21 states to provide employment opportunity to those PwD's candidates who are already skilled. Through Job fairs and skill centers 14,000 PwD's have been provided employment.
