Siddha Jagran Seva Samiti Program (SJSS), the SJSS has been envisaged to create an awakening and interest in the local community about issues like education, health (esp. children's health), behavior and attitudes (esp. of children), children's rights, duties of the grown-ups, responsibilities for social justice and all round development in the villages on micro-plan basis.


It is organized under three wings:

  1. Children's Wing:

    It consists as its members children of age from 6 to 16 years. It advocates the interest of children. In Children's rights the emphasis has to be laid on: i) The right to an identity (child's birth date registration, and birth certificate; girl-child's feticide checking, immunizations, health care and providing nutritional food ) ii) Safety during family living environment, female health and hygiene, driving and smoking/drinking ills in society) iii) Development ( Govt. schools, games & sports and entertainment material for all, including handicapped children) and iv) Participation ( Parents Teachers Students meet, Family decisions, village/school developmental efforts, environmental concerns etc)

  2. Youth Wing:

    It includes Parents and Guardians and other youth from the region interested in the aims of the SJSS. This wing includes the Foundation For Excellence (FFE) awardees in the areas of their respective Chapters. The group is to advocates development and monitoring of the schools and other active problems in the villages.

    Additionally, they are supposed to look after the healthcare requirement of children & adults. The availability of hospitals for the citizen's is essential. The youth wing will be the main participant for highlighting the concerns of the citizens and local residents to the authorities associated with the solution of the problems encountered in the region by the public.

    Similarly, SJSS contributes towards proper functioning of the schools in the locality. They try to get other NGO's involved in the programs conducted in the local schools. The youths are also encouraged to coordinate with the School Development and Monitoring Committees (SDMC) and help in proper & efficient functioning of the schools. This wing should motivate women/ guardians/community to own the schools to take active role in SDMC and SJSS, as they are the key stake holders in the Process of Development. Parents do want education for children. But whenever circumstances go beyond their control they are forced to withdraw their children from schools. SJSS should create solutions to their problems. SJSS is expected to find individual /group solutions.
