SPRAT is a mission, a movement, and an institution. None of this can work without able, dedicated people. Human Resources – volunteers, interns, professionals, members and activists – are the backbone of all its initiatives, nay, of its very existence. Donors lend it the strength to sustain and grow.

Welcome to a cause worthy of your time and resources!

SPRAT - in brief

While we invite you to explore this website, in a nutshell, we work to promote scientific temper, harmony and empowerment of the disadvantaged through constitutional means.

A national award winning NGO, SPRAT was registered in 2002. Enjoying IT Sn 80-G and FCRA registrations, it has been patronized by leaders like Dr IG Patel, Mr IK Gujral, Mr LK Advani, Lord Bhikhu Parekh etc.

Led by distinguished Governors like Dr YK Alagh and run in transparent, professional and democratic manner, SPRAT could empower thousands of youth, women and children thanks to the support of entities like RGF, US State Dept, Govt of Gujarat, Ford Foundation, ONGC, BSNL, IOC, Tata Chemicals, Shree Cement and a large number of unsung good Samaritans.

SPRAT is largely apolitical, techno-savvy, unostentatious, thoroughly professional, law-abiding and clean. Financially it is sound and stable.
