Samaritan Help Mission: “We go by need not by creed”

Samaritan Help Mission (SHM) is a Voluntary, not for profit organization based in Tikipara Slum of Howrah (West Bengal) in India predominantly having 80% Muslim Population, established in 1991 committed for the emancipation and empowerment of poor Children who are been involved in various nefarious activities and Women who lack opportunities to join the main stream of life through education and vocational training.

MISSION

To prevent the exploitation of poor slum children, specially girls, by anti-social elements by providing them opportunity for quality education - from Pre-Nursery to high school and vocational training. Also higher education and health facilities so that they develop into healthy, hardworking, broadminded, intelligent, compassionate, citizens who rise above the narrow considerations of caste, creed, community, religion, region or language and help build a strong nation.


OUR OBJECTIVES

SHM’s avowed objective is to empower the underprivileged and disadvantaged members of the society through awareness and education training and generating employment opportunity for the deprived women and girls, also to provide better health care to the children and women and motivate the mostly Muslim women through awareness for family planning.


BRIEF HISTORY

It was the passionate appeal of a child 1991, wanting to go to the school that prompted the founder of this project Mamoon Akhtar to start teaching 5-6 children in his own house. As the residents of the area became aware of this “school” more and more children started coming and there was no place to seat them. Mamoon constructed a room on his own small plot of land (600 sq.ft.) and the one room SHM School was born with 25 young eager children flocking to it. Mamoon rose to the occasion and went from door to door to raise Rs.28,000 p.a. (in addition to their own contribution of Rs.10,000).
