What is MAGAR STAR AIDS AND NATURAL SOCIAL SERVICE TRUST ?
we ask ourselves sometimes. We are varyingly referred to as an organisation, a movement, a group… While each of these definitions would fit us, it does not capture the essence of what we are really —A Very Powerful Thought 5 years ago, the thought was powered by passion and little else. Since then, number of Philanthropists have contributed to our fight to protect Women from exploitation or other social ills. However, increasingly our work has moved from providing relief to women to ensuring the society developing. While this may sound like a mere play of words, it has fundamentally changed what we do and how we see ourselves. We played a big role in the Awareness Generation about HIV/AIDS in the recent years. All the District Collectors and Government Secretaries have registered their appreciations through Govt letters which we keep volumes in our records. This encourages us to move further in our endeavor of the social cause.
