About us

Society for Social Empowerment & Training (SSET) is a not for profit organisation formed in 2009. Our core team consists of academician, educationists and persons with strong corporate and social sector backgrounds. The core team is ably assisted by support staff of young professionals who are in turn supported by large number of volunteers willing to work for a deserving cause.

We believe that collaboration is the key to achieving desired social impact and hence work very closely with corporates, academia and government to create meaningful collaborations. We have largely worked in the area of Health & Hygiene, skill development and environment protection.

Current Projects

Financial Literacy

Financial illiteracy affects all ages and all socioeconomic levels. The lack of financial literacy can lead to large amounts of debt and poor financial decisions. It is established that financially literate individuals plan better, save more, earn more on their investments, and manage their money better in retirement. Financial literacy leads to stable families and communities.

Covid Care

As a part of Mahapeconet (a collaboration between State government of Maharashtra and UNICEF) initiative we worked with the Bhiwandi Nizampur Municipal Corporation to supply 10 pediatric Bipap machines and 5 pediatric multi parameter monitors for their dedicated covid facilities. Other than this we have supported many families with dry rations throughout state of Maharashtra.

Project Muskan

Distribution of Less Smoke Chulhas (cookstoves) in rural areas of Maharashtra. Objectives were to improve respiratory health of women who inhale a lot of smoke while cooking on traditional indoor mud chulhas. Less smoke chulhas not only reduced the smoke emission by more than 60% but because of better combustion also reduced the usage of fire wood by more than 50%, thereby reducing deforestation and helping the environment.
