About Samoon Foundation

“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands — one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” — Audrey Hepburn 

The above lines are very much true! Every one of us should have a spirit to give our society something that would be beneficial to mankind as a whole.

“SAMOON” is a Garhwali word that means giving benevolently, without expecting anything in return and along with a feeling of brotherly love that is cherished for a lifetime. SAMOON is an abbreviation for “Social and Mankind Organization of Nation”. So, as the name suggests, it is an establishment that works for the welfare of mankind and society, through social work that is related to education, training, women empowerment, healthcare etc. The foundation was laid with an aim of presenting the valuable SAMOON for humanity. The organisation is a registered NGO under the Societies Registration Act, 1860 and has been serving the communities with great devotion and passion.
