SOCARE’s mission is to make a difference in the lives of indigent children and make them contribute positively to the society. SOCARE helps the children of convicts and other underprivileged children deprived of basic necessities by providing them with food, shelter and education also aiding in their healthy mental and physical growth. SOCARE Ind was started by a retired bank employee, Mr. Mani and his wife Mrs. Saroji Mani in June 1999. Mr. Mani hails from lower mid class family working for a national bank. But that did not stop him from the desire to lend a helping hand to the children in desperate need of help. His determination to help the children in need caused the birth of SOCARE Ind in his own house where Mr and Mrs. Mani raised their own children.
