Sambhav came into existence almost two decades ago. It was visualized by its founders to be an agency for socio-economic and political growth of marginalized communities. Under the guidance of eminent social activists, Sambhav chose to work with the Sahariya community of this region. Besieged by host of exploitative and disempowering situation Sahariyas are living in abject poverty and deprivation.
