The Society for the Promotion of Area Resource Centers (SPARC) has been awarded Curry Stone’s 2016 Vision Award for their dedicated work in improving the lives of slum-dwellers across India.  Founded by Sheela Patel, SPARC has worked at both the physical and policy levels, making change with dedication, numbers and force of will.

We have greatly enjoyed getting to know SPARC and their work over the last few years, and know that you will too.
