Jan Chetna Manch Patamda was established to promote education, literature, science, sports, fine arts and establish institutions to promote them, as well as social, environmental awareness, economic and social upliftment for marginalised sectors of Jharkhand.
Some of their activities in 2013-14 were as follows:
Education: The organisation laid the foundation for a rural residential school in 2009. Named ‘Dalma Vidyasthali’, the school offers classes from nursery through the 8th standard. There are currently 197 students attending the school, of which 77 stay in the hostel. 35 marginalised students have been adopted by the NGO.
Government Sponsored Schemes: The organisation works to help rural people receive the benefits of government sponsored schemes through the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA), which guarantees 100 days of work for every eligible rural household.
Homeopathy Centre: They run a free weekly homeopathy treatment centre every Sunday at the school where the medicines are provided free of cost. On average 160 people attend the camp coming from villages falling in a 60-km radius.
The NGO runs other projects including blanket distribution, tree plantation and other steps to uplift the people’s lives in that area.
