Shanti Sewa Ashram and Peace Service Centre (PSC)

Shanti Sewa Ashram and Peace Service Centre organized multiple activities including setting up a library at the Shanti Sewa Ashram with the view that education is a powerful way to eradicate poverty.

A positive parenting class and basic skills training for mothers was conducted in which they were taught a comprehensive approach to fighting hunger, improving children’s health and creating opportunities to lift children out of poverty.

A workshop in the largest slum, Kalimati, targeting young women offered training on birth spacing, family planning and income-generating activities. A special session at the Children’s Peace Home was organized for children and youth to write poems related to poverty eradication. Teachers received training on how to communicate with children about morals and how to encourage children on social accountability and their role in eradicating poverty. 25 children in a traditional Gurukul school received clothing and stationery as donations.
