Sponsor monthly bus fees for a tribal child in a remote area


Nikhil and Ratnadeep's enriching journey

When Nikhil and Ratandeep first came to Daffodils, they were tiny tots, deep rooted in poverty and speaking only in their local tongue. Their parents dreamt of sending them to school but could not afford it. We had to convince their parents to send them to us and since then the organisation have almost adopted them. They provide the children with uniforms and books. Their teachers and staff guide them. They are brought to school every day by the school transport and dropped home afterwards. Today they are visibly confident and easy going, with reasonable fluency in English, Hindi and Marathi languages. Well mannered and disciplined, they are an asset!

Program Description

The Mazi Sainik Shishan Ani Swasthya Kalyan Sanstha (MSSASKS) is a charitable Trust established by ex servicemen (ESMs). The NGO believes that education is a vital tool to amalgamate the underprivileged tribal into the mainstream, find a vocation, obtain a job, become self-sufficient, keep away from the evils of the society. In 2004, an English medium school named Daffodils was conceived as an educational initiative in this remote tribal area long before electricity and water was available to them. After considerable efforts and through personal funds contribution, Daffodils school became a reality with its own concrete structure of 14 rooms, hall, independent wash rooms for girls and boys, play ground, PT and Drill areas. Tiny tots from the tribal families were enrolled into Nursery and Kindergarten. One standard was added each academic year. School is up to Grade 9 currently. Affiliated to the State Board of Maharashtra. School Timings are 9a.m. to 3 p.m. The school has since grown in consonance of a policy decision to add one class every year. Daffodils caters to students from eight villages in remote areas within a radius of 25 kilometres from the school. The villagers are very poor and there is no organized child-safe transportation service available. It becomes imperative to convey the children by school bus. Since the parents are not in a position to pay for the bus service it is necessary to fund it. A bus service requires a driver, a conductor cum child escort. There are no paved roads to the villages and the terrain takes its toll on the bus. Therefore, the maintenance cost, fuel expenditures are substantial. A dedicated bus service has assured the parents of the safety of their children. It encourages them to send their children to school.

Mazi Sainik Shikshan Ani Swasthya Kalyan Sanstha

The Mazi Sainik Shishan ani Swasthya Kalyan Sanstha (MSSASKS) is a charitable Trust. It has been established by ex servicemen (ESMs) and like minded civilians. The genesis of the Trust lies with the formation of the Bombay Ex servicemen Association in 1990. This Organisation has been established by Mr. M Prasad a retired Masterchief of the Indian Navy, Capt Sharma (Indian Army) and others with Cmde. BB Mistry (retd) as the Patron, inspiration, mentor and guide. By 2004 the Association had been successful in the rehab of 300 ESMs and had settled the problems related to pensions of 15 dependents.

In 1994, a plan to establish a Sainik Nagar to provide affordable housing to ESMs was launched and land acquired near Karjat about 120 Kms from Bombay for a pilot Project. After numerous hitches and hurdles the Project commenced. Today there are 15 row houses with the PBORs and like minded civilians at the lowest possible cost to owner.

The location of this Project is at village Diksal. Continuous visits in connection with the housing Project brought the ESMs in contact with the inhabitants. The locals were mainly Tribals, underprivileged and the marginalized. Electricity, clean drinking water, facilities for health, hygiene, and education was a far cry. The people wallowed in neglect and accepted destitution as their fate.

Mr. Prasad and the ESMs decided to dedicate time and effort to improve the lot of the locals. They embraced them as their own.
