 Hope For The Hopeless – Empowerment Through Quality Education
Pankaj come from a musahar ghettos. He lost his father in drunken brawl and his mother is a landless labourer. They live a life much below the poverty line. He straw hut can be seen in the background of his photograph. Pankaj is now in class V of SSK. Promising in his studies he has done extremely well in both Maths and English. He will have a bright future when he passes out from SSK. His widowed mother earns a dialy wage of Rs. 25 per day during the working seasons in the fields which about 6-8 months in a year. She can not afford two square meals a day. Her son now is in a fully free English medium school and shall make a quantum jump in life. This is journey from hopelessness to hope. Pankaj now has all the facilities which a child needs to have and must have. He is attending classes in English, Maths, Science and Hindi conducted by highly qualified teachers. He has now become ambitious and wants to become a Doctor. He says he wants to ensure that his mother has a decent life and a life of self respect in her old age.
 The great transformation –
Pappu belongs to Musahars community. Musahars are landless labourers living in grinding poverty and sub-human conditions. 99.5% musahars are landless labourers and many among them are bonded labourers. They live as untouchables in ghettoes in the outskirts of the villages in Bihar and Jharkhand. Musahar children only know poverty and have an aimless existence deprived of hope and opportunity. Pappu son of a landless labourer was selected during field visit to the musahar tolis. Pappu showed aptitude and keenness for serious studies. He was not going to government village school as classes were hardly held and the teacher showed no interest. Parents who were not regularly sending Pappu to village school readily agreed to send him to SSK convinced that the child will get quality education. Pappu Kumar like others in the school is a shining example of the success and potential of this project. He has studied at SSK for two years. He has access to quality education and facilities including free boarding, lodging, medical, books, clothes etc. His academic performance is excellent and taking advantage of reservations he is likely to compete into reputed professional institutions of higher learning like IIT etc.
