Deep Jyoti Charitable Trust (DJCT) primary focus is education for children, but the remoteness of the area brought to light other needs which could not be ignored, especially with no other organisations helping the community. In FY14, based on community and volunteer feedback, DJCT started a womens empowerment programme which accounted for 57% of expenses in FY14, followed by education (27% of expenses).

Some of their key activities:

  • Women Empowerment: In FY14, DJCT started a women’s empowerment group focused on sewing. A group of 15 women come to DJCT’s campus daily for three hours in the afternoon. Some of them learn sewing, some learn English and some learn computer skills. The women are very interested in sewing and DJCT hired a stitching expert to teach a class on sewing. Due to high demand, the NGO purchased two more sewing machines to accommodate more women and expand the group. They currently have four sewing machines which are put to good use daily.
  • Education: They aim to provide non-formal education for poor & needy children and adults. DJCT aims to: 1) enrol them in their educational programme or in government-run schools; 2) improve their skill up to the appropriate level in government schools; and 3) increase their skills and knowledge up to the level for their class in private schools. Beyond education, they try to improve the overall well-being of the children by providing basic health needs, encourage extra-curricular activities and provide vocational training.
  • Sanitation: DJCT promotes environmental awareness by providing information on conservation, pollution, recycling, etc. They have completed a large community toilet block serving citizens of the Supaul District.
  • Meals for children: They provide meals to 50 young students daily after their afternoon study session. They observed that the children took an interest in learning about the cooking process. As a result, many of them began to participate in cooking the afternoon meal and learnt to cook a few dishes.
