MESCO kick-started Salam's education journey

Little Salam Waris from Malad West, lives with his father, mother and sister in their tiny house. His father is a taxi driver and mother a housewife. After suffering an accident, his father injured his leg and had to decrease his daily hours of driving. The family has since been facing a financial crunch. The family approached the non-profit as they were not being able to afford Salam's education. Not only did Salam receive free education but he was well-supported through the crisis his family was going through. He has successfully finished Nursery education and is now ready to get admission in a good English medium school and complete his higher education and become the ray of hope for his family.

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.
