Maa Sharda Jan Kalyan Sewa Samiti (MSJKSS) works for the uplift and development of the underprivileged, with a strong focus on education and health of women and children from disadvantaged communities.
Their activities include:
Education: MSJKSS organised a programme for Dalit children on the occasion of Ambedkar Jayanti at their Dandi centre in Nainital. The dignitaries present spoke on the importance of education and nominated children for free education under the Right to Education Act. Notebooks, textbooks, pencils, and sweets were also distributed. MSJKSS organised another gathering promoting the Right to Free and Compulsory Education to underprivileged children, and distributed books, pencils and other material. They also celebrated World Literacy Day on 8th September, and pledged to support the education of uneducated adolescent girls. MSJKSS organised a literacy programme for 100 poor children and rural women as part of their universal literacy drive. They continued their efforts with a session on adult literacy focused on women which was attended by 200 men and women.
Stitching and tailoring classes: Underprivileged women were provided with free stitching and tailoring training to make them more employable. This was organised by MSJKSS’s Naini wing and reached out to women near their Dandi centre. They were also given a certificate on completion of the six-month long training. A two-day programme in the Ranipur village imparted similar skills to women in that area.
Environment: The organisation put together a programme on the occasion of World Environment Day. They also organised a tree-planting programme as part of an effort to reduce environmental pollution. Participants were made aware of the effects of pollution
Health Awareness Programmes: MSKJSS organised a programme on World Population Day that explored the problem of India’s growing population. They also observed World AIDS Day by organising an awareness and counselling programme for truck drivers. They held an awareness camp on HIV/AIDS. A street play was staged to inform audiences about the spread of HIV/AIDS and its symptoms, and a doctor also educated those watching the play about the disease. A cancer awareness programme was also held in the same month to inform people about the importance of early detection and treatment of the disease.
