The great transformation

Pappu belongs to the Musahar community. Musahars are landless labourers living in grinding poverty and subhuman conditions. 99.5% Musahars are landless labourers and many among them are bonded labourers. They live as untouchables in ghettos at the outskirts of the villages in Bihar and Jharkhand. Pappu, the son of a landless labourer, was selected during field visits to the Musahar tolis. Pappu expressed his keenness towards receiving education. He had stopped going to government village school as classes were hardly held and the teacher showed no interest. After SSK convinced his parents that Pappu will be receiving quality education, his parents too agreed to send him to school. Pappu Kumar like others in the school is now a shining example of the success and potential of this project. He has studied at SSK for two years. Apart from free education he also receives free boarding, medical, books, clothes etc.

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.
