Among the vast poverty ridden population of Bihar, the most exploited and deprived is the Mushar community. They are landless laborers living in sub-human conditions for centuries. They are called Mushars because they are skilled in catching and killing field rats (in Bihari dialect called Mus) and eating them too due to lack of enough food.
Shoshit Seva Sangh (SSS) was established in July 2005 with the aim of improving the quality of life for the children of this unfortunate community. Deprived of both capital and education (literacy rate being only 5%), SSS believes that the only way to uplift this community is by providing high quality education coupled with vocational training.

-----The project recently won the CNN-IBN India Positive Award for Education for 2012-----

----SSS project on Kaun Banega Crorepati 1/13/2013 -----


On July 16th 2007, SSS established Shoshit Samadhan Kendra (SSK), a free residential school, for the Mushar community. It was inaugurated by Mr. R. S. Gavai, the Governor of Bihar. The school provides education, boarding, lodging, clothes, books, and medical support for the children. The school has 250 students from class i-viii. The children at Shoshit Samadhan Kendra have been selected from 8-10 remote villages in Bihar. It is an English medium school where the subjects taught are Literature, Grammar, spoken English, Hindi, Science, Mathematics, Social and Environmental Studies, and General Knowledge. Weekly lessons are imparted in drawing, painting, and music. The school provide facilities for audio-visual teaching using an LCD projector and a computer. By these efforts, SSS aims to change the profile of this community.
SSS project on Kaun Banega Crorepati 1/13/2013 8:30pm IST

Shoshit Seva Sangh, Asha for Education Dallas project was selected by Sony Entertainment and will be featured on Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 6 this Sunday 1/13/2013 8:30p IST.
It will be the first time ever that a musahar kid who is a student of our fully free English medium residential school in Patna for the musahar children has stepped on a plane and that too to be on the hot seat with Amitabh Bachhan and Manoj Bajpayee!

Big B was moved and was highly appreciative of the project. He has blogged about it ( and has also written on his facebook (FB -78).
SSS aspires to develop Shoshit Samadhan Kendra into a recognized high school. The schools envisions to acquire a suitable piece of land and construct a school, which would eventually house approximately 1000 children.
This admittedly is a long haul project but its impact will be permanent. The belief that this project will bring about a silent revolution in the Mushar community, which has languished in sub-human conditions for centuries, has motivated the vision and the mission of Shoshit Seva Sangh.

2013: SSS project on Kaun Banega Crorepati 1/13/2013
2012: SSS was awarded CNN-IBN India Positive Award for Education
Shoshit Seva Sangh was covered on CNN World Report this week. A group of Slovakian high school kids, inspired by the movie 'Slumdog Millionaire', are working on the prestigious Denube Charity Festival, the proceeds of which will go to SSS.

The report also features an interview by Mr.Sinha spreading the mission and vision of Shoshit Seva Sangh.

This is a huge contribution by the Slovakian kids and will definitely go a long way to make the change we all hope for!

Thank you much for making SSS the beneficiary of the event!
