Saraswati – Free Education For Poor Kids

पा॒व॒का नः॒ सर॑स्वती॒ वाजे॑भिर्वा॒जिनी॑वती। य॒ज्ञं व॑ष्टु धि॒याव॑सुः॥ [ऋग्वेद 1/3/10]

O Saraswati (Supreme, Mother of knowledge and wisdom)! Bless us with best knowledge, science and success. Purify our Aatmas with best of virtues. [Rigveda 1/3/10]

Maa Saraswati – mother of all knowledge – is the divine name of the Supreme for seekers of Vidya.

While education is birth right of every child of mother earth, it’s a luxury for poor in many parts of India. Immediate survival remains prime objective of many living below poverty line. In the process, childhood is trampled upon. Children without education, freedom, love, and care do not have any childhood.

Jan Swabhiman Welfare Society’s initiative Saraswati is an effort to provide free education for poor kids in slums. We have started with 2000 kids at 45 centers in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.

More centers coming up in Uttarakhand, Haryana, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Telangana and Assam. Our aim is to gradually reach poorest slums in all Indian States.

Why Saraswati is unique

Small kids in slums are not just deprived of education. They are exposed to lot many unwanted circumstances at home and outside.

Drunkard fathers, domestic violence against themselves, siblings and mothers, partial treatment by step-parents, no father, no mother, drugs in locality, and a lot many things apart from poverty these children face at such a tender age. All this leaves a permanent scar on their mentality that manifests in so many ways when they grow up.

At Saraswati, we not just help kids with free education to be able to make them compete with their privileged counterparts, we also provide them and family frequent counseling to create a healthy environment required for kids for their growth.

Results are amazing. Kids who won’t speak a sentence without hurling abuses earlier have transformed into tiny bright souls in pursuit of knowledge. Kids train to become educated patriots with pride of their glorious culture of India.

Cultural events and festivals are celebrated at our centers. Kids have refreshments, burst crackers, play colors, and have fun on festivals. Classes start with the spiritual chants of Gayatri Mantra - Maa Saraswati's blessings. This helps kids leave behind negativity and start the day with refreshing positivity.

Dedicated Centers for Hindus migrated from Pakistan and staying in Pak-Refugee camps in different parts of the country. These kids are now safe in India but securing a better future for them is our responsibility. And that can only happen when they are given proper education and opportunity to build their future as a proud Sanatani and contribute in the success of Bharat Mata.

We believe VidyaDaan is the best of all because knowledge gained at an early age helps guide and build a child's career and character. These children do not have anyone to look after their basic educational needs. Their parents manage their daily necessities, but educating their children is out of reach. Our volunteers assist them in filling this educational void to the greatest extent possible.
