SAC Mission 

To provide education (up to high school), boarding, lodging, medical care and Samskara (values) to the children of under privileged background from different parts of Bharat. The SAC program provides a way to all of us to connect with our roots in Bharat.

History of SAC (Support A Child):

SAC (Support A Child) program was started by World Hindu Council of America (VHPA) in year 1985. Under this program we have been supporting more than 1000+ boys and girls all over Bharat.

These children are selected from remote areas of Bharat, many are orphans and many come from under privileged back ground. Through SAC these children have received the quality education they deserve and have subsequently attended college education, technical education and even advanced degrees like Ph. D. and Doctor of Medicine. Today, many of these children are working as teachers, engineers, doctors and other professionals.

Our Partner Institutions

With the help of reputed service organizations like Sewa Bharati, Sewa Dham, Ramakrishna Mission and Bharat Kalyan Prathishthan and many more, the SAC team has selected more than 28+ hostels/schools and institutions from 18+ different states. These children stay in the hostels and get education at board certified schools. Along with the quality education, children receive medical aid, healthy/ nutritious food, school supplies, clothing and housing. These children get opportunity to learn, music, art, sports and samsakara (values).
