Who We Are
A Voluntary Organization
MESKP is an NGO working since 1984 in the fields of Social, Rural, Health, Education, Environment, Agriculture, Women and Child Development. We are located in a remote village in Bihar which works for poor people. Our overall goal is the empowerment of people from poor and marginalized communities, thereby improving their lives and livelihoods. We are the architects of the government vision of sustainable development under this umbrella, we have organized various development projects, workshops, training camps and programs etc.
We want a country of hope, tolerance and social justice, where the problem of people is overcome and people live in dignity and security.
MESKP helps reduce social exclusion by accelerating education, health and empowerment for people in rural areas.
Message From Secretary
MAHILA EVAM SHISHU KALYAN PARISHAD is a registered organization under Societies Registration Act 21, 1860 bearing registration number 456/87-88 dated 15-01-1988. The society is working in Darbhanga districts and small villages nearby Darbhanga, which are economically and geographically vulnerable regions of Bihar. The resources in the blocks of these areas face many development problems including critical shortage of drinking water, large wastelands, and poor to marginal agriculture lands, large scale family migration, low literacy rate, and exploitative socio-economic structure, unemployment and generally poor health of the poor inhabitants.
Society is chiefly involved in stimulating development action. MESKP was established to work towards empowering the rural women through SHG formation, training and capacity building with a firm belief that dissemination of knowledge would lead to awareness which ultimately would lead to self-development, confidence building, and empowerment and action orientation. MESKP also works for the socio-economic enhancement and empowerment of women through supporting and nurturing the existing and new livelihood and income-generating economic activities of poor households besides enabling them to work in groups and for the common cause of the community and the society. This is done both through financial and non-financial services made easily accessible and available to women clients on a sustainable basis. MESKP goal is to enable sustained socio-economic security for women from low-income households.
MESKP has significantly changed its programming approach over the years. MESKP is located in a remote village and works for the poor people of Bihar. Because the poor people here are dependent on agriculture or wages and Bihar is flooded for 3 to 4 months, due to which the employment of the people of the villages is lost. They go to other places in search of employment. For all these reasons, they are not able to provide education to their children. We try to help their children in their education.
MESKP has realized that the people of villages suffer a lot due to floods. After the flood, she suffers from many diseases, which we are working to mitigate, helping to keep poor people healthy. After the deluge, there is a lot of unemployment that provides much vocational training to reduce it, helping poor people connect with new technology and help them in employment.
MESKP helps in the environment and rural development to keep the village beautiful. If the environment of the village is right, then the people of the village will be healthy.
