Who we are

Founded in 1959, Sanskriti Samvardhan Mandal (SSM) is committed to the holistic development of rural communities. Our mission is to empower these areas through education, skill development, agriculture, and environmental conservation, aiming to create educated, prosperous, and sustainable communities.

Our vision encompasses cultivating educated, cultured, vigilant, and prosperous rural communities. We achieve this through a transparent and innovative approach, emphasising value-added education, environmental conservation, renewable energy, animal welfare, agriculture, women and child welfare, capacity building, and livelihood enhancement.

SSM is dedicated to preserving rural culture while advancing progress in critical sectors. Through our integrated efforts, we aspire to achieve sustainable rural development and empower individuals to thrive in a rapidly evolving world.

Our work and its impact

Education at SSM utilises a holistic five-way approach that integrates formal education, fine arts, technology education, sports, and vocational skills. With a robust alumni network of 50,000, SSM educates approximately 4,000 students annually across various institutions.

Our formal education system adopts Activity-Based Teaching and Learning (ABTL), which enhances reasoning, creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills. Digital learning technologies complement the educational experience, deepening the understanding of abstract concepts.

Our Vocational Skills programs provide practical training aligned with industry demands, blending theoretical knowledge with hands-on experience. This empowers graduates to excel in their chosen fields nationally and internationally.

How we will utilise these books

Children’s storybooks from Pratham Books will be given for the amount raised through this campaign. For more details on the books, visit [Pratham Books](https://prathambooks.org/).

The books donated to Sanskriti Samvardhan Mandal (SSM) will be pivotal in enhancing the educational experiences of rural children at Shri Chhatrapati Shivaji Junior Basic School (SCSJBS). Here's how they will be utilised:

  • - Enriching Our Library:** Expanding our school library with a diverse selection of reading materials beyond academic textbooks.
  • - Monthly Book Reading Initiative: Each student will read at least one non-academic book monthly, stimulating their imagination and exploration of new ideas.
  • - Supporting Reading Programs: Books will play a crucial role in programs designed to improve reading quality and speed.
  • - Enhancing Pronunciation Skills: Books will be used for exercises to improve reading tone and pronunciation, aiding in better language skills.
  • - Cultural and Moral Development: Some books, including those for Bhagavad Gita recitations, will instil values and enhance linguistic skills.

By integrating these books into our educational initiatives, we aim to combat excessive screen time, foster a lifelong love for reading, and equip students with the knowledge and opportunities needed to succeed.

Your donations will unlock a world of knowledge and opportunities for these children, helping to shape their futures positively.
