MISSION STATEMENT
'To provide girls and women with outstanding international opportunities for training and self-development in a multicultural environment.'

Opened in 1966, Sangam is the youngest of WAGGGS' 4 World Centres. The word Sangam comes from Sanskrit meaning ‘Coming Together’.  Events at Sangam give participants the chance to experience India, by meeting Sangam’s neighbours, visiting community projects, touring Pune and shopping in the colourful local bazaars.  Fun, laughter, singing, and sharing are always on the programme!

MY SUMMER AT SANGAM
I was lucky enough to be selected as a Volunteer Programme Assistant for a three month term at Sangam during the summer of 2000.  Needless to say, it was the experience of a lifetime!  I have piles of information and photos which I will add to this page as time permits.
