About Me: 

I am a Post Graduate in Phi., Eco., C.I.G. (Course in Child Psychology & Family Welfare)& Dip. in HIV & Family Edu., 10 yrs Teaching experience to Kids & Primary Class Students,soken English Classes for Hgr. School & College Students, Member of Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative, Mentoring Committee of Community Based Moniteing, Chhattisgarh Wildlife Society and many other Social Organizations. Presently rnning a Child Labour Special School with the help of National Child Labour Project and Reproductive Child Health Programme at unserved & underseved Tribal Area of State. Also member for Right to Information. Out of 103 Child Labour Schools at our District, we are proud to mention that ours is the best school with 100% result of the slum children. RCH Programme we have achieved 50% target in just 8 months of 3 years project. We have organised various Women Awareness and Training Programme in support with The Social Welfare Board, NABARD, Central Board for Workers Education, Chhattisgarh Environment Conservation Board.
Most important work done by the Organization "Sahayata" was that I came to know about the two Sisters of 2 and 4 years from a Slum of Raipur city, both suffuring with HIV+. It was a challange for me to how to protect them. However, After all efforts and unable to get support from Government, I, lastly met the Hon’ble Governor of the State Mr. K. M. Seth, alongwith the Photographs and video films of the sisters and informed him about illness, how their parents, both died with Aids and their aunt is trying to take care of their health but is unable, as she herself is too poor to arrange for the expensive medical treatment required.
The Governor was kind enogh and sanctioned Rs. 20,000/- for the treatment of the sisters. I then, opened a joint Fixed deposit account in name of their aunt and myself and the Bank agreed to pay monthly Rs. 322/- to their aunt from the interest for the medicins.
Unfortunately, the eleder sister died two years back but the younger is now recoverning slowly. We all the members visit her frequently and support her by our own and Doctor’s checkup. We pray to God for her health.
