Shaikh Nazma Maqsood is a 12-year-old girl child from a low socio-economic background and stays in the chawls of Mahim. She is living with her grandparents, parents and three siblings. She is presently in Std. VI in K.G Khilnani High School. Her father works at a flower shop and earns a nominal living. Nazma's mother is a house wife. Her grandfather is bed ridden due to paralysis. The family lives in a rented house and there are three more students in her family. It became extremely difficult for Nazma's father to support their education and MESCO came to their rescue.

MESCO Modern Educational Social & Cultural Organization

Modern Educational Social & Cultural Organization (MESCO) was initiated by a group of students who started distributing notebooks to the poor students. Their major source of funds was from the collection of old newspapers donated by the well-wishers. Gradually they expanded their activities to providing uniforms and other requirements to the deserving students.

As the funds increased, cases requiring medical assistance and relief were also included as additional activities. Now with a workforce of 70, the members of the organization have provided educational aid and scholarships to 3,455 students, food support to 367 families living in slum areas, medicines, cost of diagnostic tests, major and minor surgeries and support for dialysis to 240 patients and sewing machines to 115 women to supplement their income.

With a vision to help the underprivileged and marginalized to live a better tomorrow through various interventions, the members of the organization have striven to improve the quality of life of the financially disadvantaged by promoting meaningful education and health.
