We are striving for the eradication of poverty amongst the marginalized class of the society by providing them food, education, health and other related commodities.
All this is not an easy task, but with the commitment and active support of our members we have achieved a tremendous success in establishing strong linkages with the local communities at the grass-root level, creating awareness about their rights and empowering them politically and economically.
