SAHARSI is an NGO in India directly benefitting more than 1,000 children and their families through various live welfare projects on education, Girl Child Welfare, and women empowerment, in over 20 remote villages and slums across West Bengal presently.
Empowerment means strengthening for a better life because it empowers the individual to earn his/her livelihood which increases the awareness to understanding one’s rights in the society and it directly affect the child education, removal of social evils with appropriate social responsibilities.
Women care is most powerful catalyst for social transformation and a child will be motivated to go to school only if the family, particularly the mother is assured of healthcare and empowered.
Depending this, SAHARSI, beginning in the corridors of education, adopted a strategy for approach of development, focusing its interventions on children, their families.
SAHARSI believes that unless Citizens of the society are involved proactively in the process of development, sustainable change will not happen. Following this model of Civic Driven Change, SAHARSI sensitizes and engages the civil society, making it an active partner in all its welfare initiatives.
