Since 1966, Sangam World Centre has partnered with a variety of non-governmental organizations striving to better the lives of people in Pune.
Today, Sangam is affiliated with more than twenty organizations, which work in a number of fields: medicine, education, environmental
sustainability, women’s empowerment, and more.
During events, participants visit Sangam’s Community Partners, and are given the chance to witness community leadership and advocacy in action, while participating in dialogue with the partner organizations and the children, women, and men they assist. These connections often result in partnerships between event participants and Community Partners, helping to build the capacity of these organizations.
