SACSAS stands for SAve Children SAve Society. SACSAS Academy is a secular organization dedicated to socio-economic change in Manipur. In pursuit of this goal, SACSAS focuses on basic education in the belief that education is a critical requisite for socio-economic change.

Since 2014, Asha Redlands has been supporting Laishoi and Maovam district school running cost including teacher salary and other related education expenses. Please contact redlands.projects@ashanet.org for any questions regarding these two schools.
1. To provide quality education to underprivileged and downtrodden (low-income) children in Manipur.

2. To nurture such small children (upto the age of 8) to have the habit of going to school so that they will ask their parents to send them to school once they come out of SACSAS Academy.

3. To encourage the formation of various local groups across Manipur to reach out to larger sections of the population.

4. To raise the required human and other resources to achieve the group objectives.

5. To provide opportunities to individuals living outside Manipur or India who wish to participate in SACSAS activities in Manipur.

6. To address, whenever possible, other issues affecting human life such as health care, environment, socio-economic aspects and women's issues.
One of the main reasons why children of low income family stop going to school or do not go to school at all is because many of their parents do not send them to school for they want to use them to make money for their livelihood, or schools are far and there is no means of transportation to go to schools in neighboring villages. If the children do not have a habit of going to school right from the beginning they will not tell / urge their parents to send them to school. That is how they end up being illiterate. Generally the illiterate parents never feel the importance of getting their children quality education.

The first unit of SACSAS Academy was opened on the 10th of May 2003 at Yaoshulakpa (Laishoi) Branch of Moirang, Manipur. Laishoi is a village where there is no school at all. The guardian of the locality had been trying hard to have at least an Anganwadi branch or any form of school from the state government but the effort was all in vain. They have four teachers to take care of 65 downtrodden children. We are overwhelmed at the response of the parents of the village. We currently have 5 schools running in the remote villages of Manipur.

SACSAS Academy is an FCRA approved organization and the funds can be directly sent to the head office in Moirang, Manipur.
