One Sunny day as I was walking in dusty road with Faster steps my legs moved slowly by seeing a little girl Jikriyabanu of 5 years moving around is a lane. Her movements were not usual. Her hands were her legs. She looked like a rabbit moving around with cheerful face and hope in her eyes. I approached her and asked about her where abouts. She fluently spoke in Kannada and took me to her house. She introduced me her father and I began conversing with him about Jikriya’s condition. He explained his efforts of taking her to different doctors but nothing could work out without money. Due to his poverty, he was unable to do the surgery of his daughter. At this moment, I told him about Roshni trust, which conducts early intervention activities, supports for surgeries and distributes aids and apliances. I brought him to roshni and this visit really brought light in his life. Roshni agreed to support Jikriya free of cost. I Passionately volunteered to support this child. I accompanied her to Bangalore for screening and surgery. I experienced inner peace and joy as I found a sigh of relief on the face of her father. After the surgery Roshni did the follow up. One fined day, I visited her house and found Jikriya keeping her little steps with lot of joy and hope. Tears rolled my down my eyes as she and her father came to me with great full heart. I whispered my thanks to Roshni for giving me such joy by being a volunteer .

“There can be no keener revelation of a society's soul than the way in which it treats its children." Unfortunately, a section of children of our society is bereft of the opportunities that the privileged avail of. Seeing this unequal balance of education in our society, Mrs. Anjali Jaipuria started Navsrijan in 2010 to provide English medium quality education to those underserved children who were deprived of their fundamental right to education and lived on the social and economic margins of life. Navsrijan envisions in bringing social, economic transformation by educating the less fortunate, as she believes- “Service to man is a service to God.’ When Navsrijan started with 50 children, way back in 2010 with dreams in her eyes to give a life of respect and dignity to them, she had a little inkling that this was the beginning of a long-lasting relationship with the less fortunate strata of our society. Once the beginning was made she never looked back. Today Navsrijan reaches out to 320 underserved children with the same facilities as mainstream children have, from kindergarten to Grade 8th with the determination to progress till Grade 10th. To add to the glory of Navsrijan, 34 children of Navsrijan are metamorphosed into our mainstream school, Seth M.R.Jaipuria, Lucknow. In her humble way, she takes care of all their needs, be it academics, extracurricular, books and much more. She has a trained faculty for Navsrijan that is comprised of a Principal and sixteen teachers. Keeping holistic education as a goal, Navsrijan impacts children not just with English, Maths, Science, Social Studies or Environmental Studies but also with IT skills, Yoga, Sanskrit, Value Education, Home skills, Fine Arts and Performing Arts. They study in digitalized classrooms. She aims to make them intellectually, emotionally, physically and spiritually balanced citizens of the country. Navsrijan has children who have seen the struggle in their very early age, who spend their morning and evening life milking the buffaloes, helping their parents delivering milk and newspapers, working as housemaids in various houses and looking after their younger siblings at home. But they all have crossed the borders and became rising stars and true examples for the society that each child is born with a special talent and they are one of them. Her children are now sharing the same platform with mainstream children in various competitions. Not only that she gives them equal opportunity to share the same platform but also strives hard to make them capable to stand by the side of mainstream children and match their achievements with them. In such a short span of time, Navsrijan produced athletes who have won gold medals at the state-level in national school games, ASISC athletic meet, and Inter-School Jaipuria meet. They have excelled in Yoga and Sanskrit also and won many prizes at state level competitions. They have also won prizes in inter-school Art and Literary festival by defeating many prestigious schools of the state. While doing this work she realized that – ‘Every child you encounter is a divine appointment” She feels overwhelmed and motivated by their love, purity, and thankfulness. “Education is simply the soul of the society” She is making a small effort in illuminating the soul of our society. She will continue to touch more lives and work tirelessly to open doors of opportunity for the underserved.

Where all the transactions of money happen, the bank is in everyone's mind. But there is 'Grain Bank' in the village of Dafal in Madha taluka of Solapur district. Darfal is situated on the banks of river Sina, nine kilometers away from the river. The village that was inspired by the 'Rashtra Samiti Dal' and inspired by the thought of Sane Guruji The Muslim youth of Umrao Sayyed started the formation of 'Rashtra Seva Dal' in the village of Darfal in 1940. Jaiprakash Narayan, Annasaheb Sahastrabuddhe was present in the camp held at Matilbor in suburban Maharashtra in 1956. He presented the concept of a self-dependent village at that time and explained the way to rural development. The villagers also enthusiastically established 'Village Development Board' in the village. Junkyard was further included in the 'Khadi Village Industries Seed Scheme'. At that time, Vitthalrao Patwardhan, the then officer of the scheme, presented the concept of grain bank in front of Darfalkar. The young sarpanch of that village Tukaram Nivrutranti Shinde took the idea. On 1 March 1960, with the help of his colleagues, he established 'Grain Bank' by 'Village Development Board'. What was the reason behind this? Farmers and agricultural laborers in rural areas have to take loans (mostly jowar) from the lenders, big farmers or traders. Suppose, if one grandson takes a loan, then the grain repayment should be done in accordance with the calculation of two and a half grandchildren in the season. This type of name was called Palmeod. To recover lenders; It was going on the Khalas. Jawar was seized by the principal and the interest. Therefore, the foodgrains of two or three bags remain for the farmer throughout the year. The farmers also came to Radkundi. As an answer to this oppressive system, the 'Grain Bank' was established. The lobbyists were, of course, opposed to that thing. But all the general public stood firmly with Tukaram Shinde. As a means of facing the drought situation, the grain banks were first introduced in the year 1905 in Thane district of Maharashtra. After that many banks were withdrawn in Orissa around 1930. Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Orissa and P. Bengal's grain banks were going on in the state. Farmers from all walks of the village got their share while collecting the dividend for 'grain bank' in Darbhal village. The 'Grain Bank' was established in 1960. At that time, twelve quintals of quintal from the members of the sixty-eight members gathered in rupees twelve kilogram of jowar. At least one person in each family of the village is a member of the bank. The villagers in the area can also get some kilo kilograms of deposits in a depository bank and become a member. A grandson, borrowed, has to pay four-legume grains for interest. Grain recovery is done during harvesting. Unless the whole grain is collected, the bank does not allocate loans for the next year. There is about to pay the grain bank's debt. The name of the person who first owes the loan is written on the board in the village! The banks' owned 'pave' are built in the land to store the amount, as is' Strongroom 'for holding the amount and valuables in nationalized banks. Improvement is the dug in the soil. A traditional arrangement of thousands of potions digging under the ground is found in Haripur village in Sangli district. Grains (mainly sorghum) are stored safely throughout the year. The pavement is prepared by digging deep into the ground. Its diameter is 20 feet in the bottom, and the mouth is two and a half feet. It is like a bunting-shaped flute or a flute in a laboratory. The whole structure of the pave is constructed. Around 300 quintals of grains are stored in one leaf. Five such pavements are constructed in the soil in the water. The stock of Jowar deposited in the grain bank, the stock of Jawar for the next year is left to the stock and 'Grains of grain' are sold for the next year. That money is spent for the development of the village. Darbhal village does not depend on government help for development. Grain Bank donated donation for the construction of Nav Bharat Vidyalaya in Darbhal. The hostels for the same school students for the construction of grain, Vitthal temple; Apart from this, donations have also been made for Nav Bharat Library and also for the construction of the hall. In villages, training has been done in villages such as Tilim, Bhajmandai, Cultural platform, Sina river mud bund, sanitary cove, Shambhanshal shed, installation of tiles (ladders / tiles) in the Dharmeshal, help for water fountains, warehouse, Vetalpar and restoration of Pira. The Bank has provided material to the Bhajan Board. The Bank has also helped the Gram Panchayat's own water supply supply scheme, the Gram Panchayat well, the electricity pumps. 'Grain Bank' spends the entire yatra of the village; No one from the village is being asked for a subscription. Bank is engaged in the maintenance of social commitment from time to time. For example, in the year 1962, when the Panshet Dam was broken, and the Killari earthquake, the bank provided sorghum and cash assistance to the accident victims. There are eleven directors' executive boards, including the president, vice president, to see the transaction of 'grain bank'. The election of the Board is usually unconstitutional. There is a secretary, two joint secretaries and two soldiers to manage office work regularly. The bank has its own office.

Case study from Lok Kalyan Seva Kendra- Dumka related to Organic farming practice from women farmer. My name is Pinky Devi. I reside in Amduma village which comes under Chatra panchayat of Porraiyahat block, Godda, India. The source of livelihood in our family is based on agriculture. During the whole year, we engage ourselves in cultivation, but due to lack of irrigation sources and low rainfall, the production level has reduced which has resulted in vegetable loss. Because we don’t have technical knowledge to increase the production rate of agriculture through smart farming practice, so we bought some high prize chemical fertilizers from the market. Using these fertilizers has not benefitted us; rather it has caused an increase in the loss of production. Previously, we were using traditional farming methods, but after attending a capacity building training from an agriculture expert of the Lok Kalyan Seva Kendra team, we started using other methods to increase the production rate. One was to utilize the grass which used to be pulled by the farmers and was thrown out. Now the grasses are composted and used as green manure resulting in a higher rate of production. This method of farming seems to be ordinary, but the production rate is increasing which is appreciated and practiced by others in our community. After I became one of the NG-(Nutrition Group) members in our village I received information on drought resilient agriculture practices through a training and awareness program. Currently, I am practicing kitchen gardening in our backyard which is providing our family with green organic vegetables on a daily basis. We dependency on the market has reduced and we now feel like our food is more nutritious

Every morning, Ganga Javakar gets up, gets on her Bullet motorbike, and visits the villages under her care in Melghat region of Vidarbha. As the sarpanch (village head), discusses the locals' concerns, earning trust through her hard work to find resolutions. Ganga was born in the Koraku tribal community. From a young age, Ganga worked as a daily-wage labourer to help her widowed mother. She could not afford to continue her education after 12th grade, but took up work as a coordinator in social organizations on issues like primary education, child labour and single mothers. Ganga applied for CORO’S Quest Grassroot Leadership Development Fellowship in 2010, on ‘Livelihoods under the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme’. Ganga started her fellowship work in 15 villages, conducting meetings and asking questions like: What are the sources of livelihood? How many of them own farmland? How many of them work in others’ fields? How many are unemployed? She compiled all the information presented it to the local tehsildar (revenue officer) to advocate for employment benefits. By the end of her fellowship, Ganga’s working area had scaled up from 15 to over 50 villages. “If I want to create larger change, it must be done through political participation.” This belief spurred Ganga stand for local election, winning the position of sarpanch in 2013. As sarpanch, Ganga prepared a priority list of the concerns of her four villages about water, electricity, roads, and so on. With the remaining funds, installed solar panels in public places. Soon after, a local group awarded Ganga the title "Melghat chi Vaghin" (Tigress of Melghat). Melghat is a local forest famous for its tigers. In 2018, Ganga was awarded the state-wide Lokmat Sarpanch Award for her work on women’s security.

Three year old Krishna is the livewire of the 5-member Talpada family in Nava Bilodra village of Nadiad taluka. He was named Krishna as he was naughty and sharp ! His father is a daily wage worker on whom the family depends, while his grandfather is a cancer patient. Following high fever, vomitting and dairrhoea one day, a drastic reduction began taking place in his weight. Within a few days, Krishna was practically reduced to a skeleton. The local doctor referred him to Shree Krishna Hospital considering the complexity of his ailment and risk to life. Initially, he was critical and did not respond well to medicines. He had severe protein energy malnutrition with septicaemia & his body had turned bluish. His father, who spent on treating his grandfather had now to pay also for Krishna's treatment. After paying the initial bills, he felt helpless and approached the Hospital staff. His family profile was assessed. The Mandal stepped in to help with support of donors as well as the Tata Trusts. After being treated for 61 days in the Paediatric ICU, his condition improved. When he recovered fully, he returned home, healthy and happy. His parents are thankful to donors for the support received.

A boy child abandoned by the parents thrown away to a bin left uncared. On the 7th day of his existence, a passerby brought given him to us ( the Mother of Gerizim ) for care, survival & sustenance. The child was a premature baby, malnourished & needed medical attention at the earliest. Gerizim rushed to the nearby hospital, kept him inside an incubator for three months, given kangaroo-care, breast milk bought from a feeding mother & fed daily. He was given special care at home to make him live fit in a homely atmosphere. Gerizim mother, Mrs Indira Yesudian brought him along with her two biological children plus 20 other normal parentless (orphan) children in her two-roomed house. The child grew gradually with parental attention & brotherly/sisterly kindness with other residents in the house. Good education in a reputed English-medium school qualified him a student to finish his schooling. More inclined in technical education, he was admitted to a Internet Academy for Web designing and graphic/fashion designing course. .He is an young man of 20 years now hardworking & appointed to be a Graphic Designer in our Organization itself. Good at Motor car driving as well helpful to us. Observing him an active & smart staff, he is given the in-charge position at our Training Center in Bangalore. At present, he does all the designing/printing/preparing outreach materials to promote the ideals/interests of Gerizim to the people outside. He contacts the Public to collect orders for the sale of Gerizim products made at our Skill Development Centers. Besides, he utilizes opportunities to organize Display/Sale at Corporates & other places on invitation/request. He builds up our Junior Training Unit in Bangalore. I have given him another responsibility of starting a new " BAMBOO PROJECT " & he is faithfully at it. He is God-fearing with pleasing habits. Being talented with leadership abilities, if everything goes well, at one stage, he would become one of the pillars of Gerizim. The money/resources invested/being invested on him, does not go in vain. He really is an inspiration to others both inside/outside our campus. A few photos of him are attached with this mail.

Karthika Krishnan hails from Thiruvarur, a village located 26 kilometers away from Manjakkudi. Her father works as a clerk in the court while her mother is a homemaker. After completing her schooling from a Tamil medium school in Thiruvarur, she was on the lookout for colleges in and around her hometown to pursue a college education. A visit to Swami Dayananda College of Arts & Science in Manjakkudi left her impressed. Her reasons for immediately joining the college were the remarkable infrastructure, reasonable fees and most importantly, the college bus which ferried students daily from Thiruvarur. The commute by bus would save her both time and energy allowing her to concentrate better in college besides taking care of her parents’ safety concerns. Swami Dayananda College of Arts & Science was Karthika’s first experience in an English medium institute. Initially, she found it difficult to cope, but within the first semester she had settled in well. She gives the entire credit for this smooth transition to her professors who taught her how to take notes, adopted a bilingual approach (Tamil and English) while teaching, suggested reference material that would guide her at every step beside supporting and motivating her each day. A class topper in her final year of Bachelors in Computer Application, she was among the few students who were selected for a job at Wipro through campus placement. It was during the interview process that Karthika realized the importance of English, the knowledge of which played a significant role in landing her the job. Karthika says she owes it to the college for teaching her the right values, building her personality and giving her the confidence to communicate effectively with people. “I can present myself confidently in front of others because of the exposure I gained in college,” she smiles. Karthika was the first girl in her village to start working right after college and has been a role model to several children. She tries to help youngsters realize their potential, encouraging them to pursue higher studies and referring them for admission to Swami Dayananda College of Arts & Science. It has been six years since Karthika started working in Wipro, and all through these years, she has made it a point to visit her alma mater regularly. She has seen the college grow with more forums, seminars, webinars, inter-collegiate events, and competitions, exposing students to better opportunities. Seeing the progress that the college has made in such a short span, she says that she would love to go back and redo her degree.
