The organization SANMAT (SSNMT) tformed by me has also inspired young enthusiastic multidisciplinary graduates passionate about building just and participative society. On my journey towards bringing chage I am accompanied by young people who having been educated in the premier institutes of the Country and employed by fortune companies they realized that even though the Country was progressing the benefits were not percolating to the deserving section of the society. I was always concerned by the inequality and discrimination that dalit (lower caste) and minorities and even within that children, women and youth faced in East Champaran the place from where Gandhiji began its freedom movement is besotted by poverty, discrimination, alcoholism and corruption at all levels. Men from the area migrate to other States where they face further discrimination and even threat to life as one has seen the violence towards Bihari's in Mumbai. The situation of health, education is abysmal. Even in access to Government schemes there is a large scale corruption. so I decided to work in my own area with a focus on developing capacities of young people by providing access to knowledge and information as they can be a catalyst for change we have brought to the fore the corruption in Indira Awas Yojana, filed RTIs to know where funds meant for development projects have been spent. We have been working at various levels to bring about change in the area by arming the community with knowledge and information and supporting them to take action.
• MOBILE SCHOOL
The mobile school or Chalta Firta Gyan Kendra was initiated to reach out to children who were out of school or had dropped out. The youth animator visited their houses motivated children and parent’s on the importance of education. The children are provided education in an interactive and meaningful way.
This is a multistep process in which we facilitate the door-step learning and then further enrollment into the school.
1. The 1st step includes the assembly at the common place in the village and learning the basics by the tutors and the volunteer.
2. The 2nd step includes the enrollment of children to the nearby govt. school.
3. In the final step the enrolled students are monitored for their performance and those who backed out are reached for the re-counseling session.
The program is presently run in the NAWADA PANCHAYAT at SIX Centers.
One of the method that we have employed is through our Dalit Youth Support Program (DYSP) is offering scholarship facilities for underpriviledge youth for higher education, this will help reduce disparities amongst youth from upper, middle and lower class in the long run. In addition to providing scholarship we built their life skills and organize workshops/seminars focussing on improving communication and contacts between youth at various levels. Till date we have supported.....youth through the program.
