Sarvahitey is bridging the gap between North East & Rest of India
Do you remember your college days when you joined a community with all the zeal and vigor but everything faded sometime after and you got back to your shell, and went on with your robotic life. Yeah, I know that feel, I’ve been there too.
We plan to do so many things, change the world in so many ways, work out the problem so many time but yet, we tend to so little.
Well, Sarvahitey, a Delhi based NGO is what we could have been if we did what we planned, if we ever did plan. Working as one for the good of all, Sarvahitey is a team of 6 young souls along with many others willing to make life good for everyone in the country.
The NGO is setting up Libraries in two districts of Nagaland- Mokochung and Tuensand and the organization seeks help from everyone who is willing to give part of pocket money/income. You can visit here to donate and join in the good cause. Donation period ends on April 09, 2018.
Sarvahitey- Working as one for all
Sarvahitey as an organization, has done some commendable work in the recent past by setting up Libraries which can be later used as Community Centers in Haryana and Himachal Pradesh.
The NGO’s original idea is to build 1000 ‘cultural community centres’ around the country. These centres apart from the usual function of a library would also double up as digital literacy centres, knowledge exchange hubs and skill training centres for local youth.
The team not only helped just promote the reading culture among locals, but also increased digital literacy among them by organizing regular workshops and seminars. In addition to setting up libraries, the NGO is active with its following models.
What is Sarvahitey upto now?
After their success and positive impact in Haryana and Himachal Pradesh, the organization has reached Nagaland, with a motive to reconnect the land of birds back to the rest of India.
The NGO has planned to set up community centers in Mokochung and Tuensand district with the help of Nagaland State Legal Services Authority (NSLSA).
With these two cities plan charted out, the NGO aims to build more community centers in other remote areas of the state.
Mokochung, also known as the land of pioneers is one of the remote areas of Nagaland which is also the cultural nervecentre of the Ao people. Sarvahitey will upgrade the library in Ungma village of Mokochung District. In addition to books, the centers will be a meetup place for workshops, seminars and other activities.
In Tuensand district, the library will be set up in Chingmai village. The Chingmai village, which does not exist according to the internet is one of the most backward villages in India. The NGO will be setting up the libraries from scratch which will also be a community center for the locals.
“After our previous projects, there has been a drastic change in attendance at schools and the numbers have shot up to double in three months. The main idea is to gain their trust and about intervening to spread awareness about education.”
Sarvahitey’s step to create community centers in form of libraries has been appreciated by many. Owing to their success in Haryana and Himachal Pradesh, the organization has been featured in Logical Indian and NDTV.
