Hope For The Hopeless - Empowerment Through Quality Education

Pankaj hails from Musahar ghettos. He lost his father in a drunken brawl and his mother is a landless labourer. They live a life much below the poverty line. Pankaj is a CLass V student. His mother earns a daily wage of Rs. 25 per day for 6-8 months in a year. She can not afford two square meals a day. Shoshit Seva Sangh has ensured that her son studies in an English medium school, free of cost. Pankaj now has all the facilities which a child needs. He is attending classes in English, Maths, Science and Hindi conducted by highly qualified teachers. He wants to become a doctor when he grows up. He says he wants to ensure that his mother has a decent and respectable life in her old age.

Program Description

Shoshit Seva Sangh (SSS) runs a free English-medium residential school in Patna for the children of the Musahar community. Musahar communities live in designated ghettos in the outskirts of villages in Bihar. They get seasonal employment in fields. In 2011, the school, Shoshit Samadhan Kendra, had 250 students - all living in the school hostel. This number increases by 50-55 each year. Due to lack of both literacy and education in this community, almost all the new admissions are in the preschool class. SSS is working to increase this number gradually, and hope to build a capacity to accommodate 800 students in their free residential school within the next 4 or 5 years. They have recruited a well-qualified and experienced faculty in all the subjects taught at the school. Presently the ratio between the taught and the teachers is 1:20. The objective is to give these children high quality education to be able to compete with the best in the country. SSS will also finance and facilitate the higher education of the children passing out from this school. They aim to empower their students in such a way that they become role models in their community as well as catalysts of change.

They live in subhuman conditions in ghettos scattered among the villages of Bihar. The children therefore have to be given boarding, lodging and all other facilities.
