Agamee-A Society for Help for Self Help has been enlightening and energizing the lives of the economically and socially underprivileged people irrespective of caste, creed, or religion. This Organisation has been always endeavoring to find out the people who are in genuine need to get the support rendered by ‘Agemee’.

In the future, we have some plans –

  1. We want to build up the cultural interest of our students for dance, singing, recitation, sit and draw competitions.
  2. We would plan to organize several awareness programs in different schools, colleges, and universities in our country.
  3. We will organize seminars and workshops in different localities, communities on gender and environmental issues.
  4. This year we have a plan to visit our associate organizations in Hotar and Rampura with a theatre troupe. As our previous experience suggests, this kind of cultural entertainment helps our students to build their personality and it also builds such a friendly atmosphere which helps the organization to work on those areas.
