EDUCATION: Swami Vivekananda has rightly quoted “Service to humanity is service to god.” Education is not just providing knowledge, skills, talent, it is the true guidance which is like small torch in a dark forest, it doesn’t show everything once but gives enough light for the next step to be safe.
Thereby, our NGO SSF will full effort and enthusiasm of team members have taken revolutionary action towards providing education to underprivileged children of slum areas from zero level to an extent where they can represent themselves with full pride and confidence. We have different literacy centers across India coordinate by different team with full aspiration.
Apart from this, we provide golden opportunity to students of class V and VIII and make them prepare for Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya(JNV) exam. Not only this, we provide them with study material, books, pens, pencils, erasers and many others. There may be many NGO’s but yes we can proudly say we are contributing our best towards building India with full transparency by giving opportunity to meritorious students to get admission in best school of city to achieve perfection to the aim we have set.
SPORTS: For being civilized person, just not being an educated person will make you creative person but inheriting good inner qualities will make one better Indian. SSF also provides platform of releasing inner stress of life and enhance mood, keeping younger ones fit, healthy and fine. Therefore, Slum Swaraj encourages children towards sports by organizing ‘UMANG’ event, annual sports event where children participates in different games like lemon race, Kabbadi, Kho-Kho, 100 m race, smack down and many others.

HEALTH AWARENESS: In our country, different awareness programmes are being run by Government, NGO’s, Constitutional body regarding health, hygiene, pollution, cleanliness and yes, it has played major setback in today’s world making people aware of each and every activities being focused in country and their problems, cure and precautions. But the bitter truth is that these awareness programmes are just prevalent in urban area, metropolitan areas. Rural people still faces huge problems due to lack of knowledge of awareness themes making their health worsened day by day to day leading to loss of life and property. Major problems lying in rural and slum areas are health status making their condition worse leading to greater number of death in coming years.
SSF also provides feedback about proper health care to old age, children and women of the slum area people. A large number of lives from rural areas of India are still not aware about issues related to menstruation and maintaining personal hygiene during this period as they don’t get proper platform to discuss. Every Sunday, we give proper guidance about sanitation. Clean drinking water and their importance to life. Thereby, SSF takes proper care of guiding slum people regarding menstrual hygiene, sanitation, promotion of sanitary napkins instead of traditional method, Heart and lungs diseases, their precaution and cure, consuming tobacco and their harmful effects. SSF believes in power of yoga and music. Hence, we keep teaching our children about important of yoga and create awareness amongst them about proper health care steps.
