To enhance the quality of lives of underprivileged woman and children by supporting programs in the fields of Primary Healthcare and Education.
Inspiration, The beginning:
Share and Care, the brainchild of a small group of Indian-Americans, was born in 1982 in New Jersey. Currently the core group is comprised of some 40 active volunteers with different backgrounds and disciplines. This includes professionals in the fields of medicine, administration, finance, business and engineering. The core group and the Foundation enjoy the support, enthusiasm and dedication of the community at large.
The Foundation began with a very simple idea to convert what is considered "waste" in the western world into much needed help in the East. The idea became reality when good quality used clothes were collected and sent to orphanages and women's home in rural India. Medical supplies and equipment that were considered "obsolete" in the west but were a leap forward in remote areas were soon included in the shipments. These supplies dramatically improved the quality of care in charitable hospitals there.
From its infancy, the group realized the benefits of volunteerism and self-help. Share and Care volunteers see themselves as catalysts, promoting low cost, high return programs at grass root levels. Our 100% volunteer organization maximizes the utilization of funds for a deserving cause. The most exciting aspect of our work is that in twenty seven years of Foundation's existence, the programs have grown over a hundred - fold.
