It goes without saying that the media fraternity is a very important institution in the development of the underprivileged community of the country. The media today encompasses essentially every component of the society. And in a way, that it is nearly impossible to remain ignorant anymore. It plays a major role in developing opinions or preferences, interpretation of how people see the world around them, purchase decisions, etc. Most importantly, the media brings awareness to the people. That awareness triggers thinking. And only when the privileged ones think seriously about their role play in development of the deprived, will they participate in it. The media fraternity has given Smile Foundation overwhelming support so far. Without their advocacy it would have been very difficult for Smile to reach out to all those needy and deserving children through its welfare initiatives.

Driven by his dream of bringing a constructive and meaningful change in society, Shekhar Mahajan, conceived the idea of "Sahyog Care for You" in the year 2002. This organisation is his baby that created a niche in the social sector as well as sustainability industry. An MSW post graduate, a lawyer by profession, a philanthropist by passion and a social reformer by choice; Shekhar has high aspirations, strong demeanour and yet a soft streak in him. He leveraged his education, experience and social skills to do his bit, to create Sahyog Care while facing and overcoming the challenges that come on his way. He has strategized and implemented various programmes across India, reached nine states and together with Sahyog team, personified the values of care, diligence and empathy. His mettle need no testimony; he converted challenges into opportunities by conducting thorough research to provide simple and strategic solutions to the communities in need. Sahyog Care made available, urban underutilized material, to far flung rural communities to address their basic needs of education, personal hygiene, sanitation, water conservation and means to livelihood. Backed by a rich experience in the social sector, his undeterred guidance and out-of- the box thinking is instrumental in Sahyog care growth over the years. Shekhar says, Sahyog does not want to grow only as an organization but also as a scaffold for those in need, creating a small world holistically…. a world where children would not be deprived of their basic right to education, a world where needy women would find employment through professional training, a world where empathy his not pretended but practiced.
