Social workers attempt to relieve and prevent hardship and suffering. When many worked on social services like supporting old age, feeding and nursing poor etc, this group highly believed in the quote “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can be used to change the world” and didn’t just let it be a quote but worked on to materialize it.
Modern day education is completely commercial and that’s the truth which none of us can deny. As a matter of fact citizens are losing faith in government aided schools unlike many other developed countries where government schools are still the first choice. This is where we pitched in to bring up the quality education of government schools at par or higher than other devils.
The group initiated measures for improvements with government schools but soon realized that changing mindset of citizens around the schools was a major challenge and this gave birth to the idea of model “self sustaining village” in the year 2010. Since then the group is focused in this noble cause.
