History & Vision

Smile Together India was founded in 2019 by a native Bihari named Sourabh Kumar. After a visit to the Kanichi Dham Neem Karoli Baba Ashram, Sourabh was inspired to start a social service organization to help alleviate the suffering of the Bihari people who according to the 2019 SDG India Index are one of the poorest states in India with 33.7 percent of the population living in poverty. Sourabh enlisted the help of his brother Sandeep Kumar and an American social worker to develop a collaborative effort which included the establishment of an Executive Board made up of villagers and community members who oversee the operations of Smile Together India using a shared decision making process which improves social empowerment among all members.
