SAMPARC was started with a very humble purpose to give a new identity to the orphan, destitute & children of sex workers to grow under community umbrella.
SAMPARC is a brainchild of Shri Amitkumar Banerjee & Smt. Lata Pande who realized that an organisation needs to be started so that children should not be identified as children of sex workers or orphans or a destitute child. With this sole purpose SAMPARC was started in 1990 at the footsteps of famous Bhaje Caves with 7 orphan children near Lonavala which now grew to 2000 children.
