The works of Gyan Shree Foundation Trust are targeted at social and economic welfare of the marginalised community. The core areas of interventions include education, healthcare, skill development, livelihoods, social justice and inclusion.
In the past five years the Trust has implemented a number of activities focused on empowerment of socially, educationally and economically marginalised section of the society, including senior citizens, women workers and children. Financial inclusion and awareness, road safety advocacy, awareness for preventive healthcare, skill development and vocational training and livelihood were among the focus areas of work.
Many government institutions, non-governmental organisations and companies provided financial and technical support for such activities.
Nearly 2000 candidates benefited from the skill development and livelihood programmes. Gyan Shree Foundation Trust conducted vocational training and skill development programmes in collaboration with Bihar Skill Development Mission (BSDM), National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) and Tata Institute of Social Sciences – School of Vocational Education (TISS-SVE).
The focus areas of awareness and advocacy programmes were – financial inclusion, road safety, and child health and nutrition. While the financial inclusion and awareness programmes were supported by the National Stock Exchange and Skoch Consultancy Services Pvt Ltd, the awareness campaign on road safety and child health and nutrition were conducted with the help from the financial support provided by the trustees and internal sources of revenue. Thousands of people benefited from these programmes.
Our initiatives in the areas of road safety and child health helped save several lives. Our grassroots level work helped in improving health condition of poor children and prevented them from falling prey of the deadly Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) disease in Muzaffarpur district and surrounding areas. Our efforts have helped bring positive change in the lives of thousands of people, especially the marginalised.
