NGO Profile :
Banwasi Vikas Ashram was established to create confidence in rural populations of Giridih (Jharkhand), to empower them to attain economic independence and assist them in living healthy lives.

Some of their 2013-14 activities were as follows:

  • Education Programme: They created Lokpahal to improve the quality of the local education system through 120 government primary schools. The project focuses on promoting an education for girls to ensure basic rights and entitlements.
  • Community Mobilisation: The organisation undertakes initiatives through village meetings and mass awareness programmes with the aim to increase participation of the community in the social development process of villages. They focus on strengthening existing community based organisations through regular reflection meetings with local schools and village education committees. Banwasi Vikas Ashram has helped to establish a remedial coaching centre, a local resource pool, a small community based library, and conduct trainings to provide basic learning to children.
  • Residential Bridge Course Camp for Disadvantaged Adolescent Girls: This programme is conducted for girls from the age of 10 years to 14 years who are out of school or who have never been to school. By the end of 2014, 50 adolescent girls from various social groups received bridge education courses and 97% mainstreamed into upper classes in various formal schools.
