In 1990 SAMPARC procured a piece of land at the footsteps of famous BhajeCaves. Initially a mud house was constructed & SAMPARC was started with 7 orphan children & for about Four and Half Years Shri Amitkumar Banerjee & Smt. Lata Pande had run the organization in the mud house & in the same house children strength went up to 46. Along with this orphanage SAMPARC carried pre primary school education program in & around 25 villages with the financial assistance from CRY & also started Vocational Training Centre to train rural school dropouts in welding, wireman, plumbing, tailoring, bamboo & crafts.

With the help of Save the Children SAMPARC carried non formal educational program & brought all these children under the level of 5th standard & subsequently provided them with Vocational Training.
