Jharkhand Mahila Samakhya Society Perspective:-
JMSS aim has been quite obvious in the context of children. There should not be any kind of discrimination among the children as well as also make sure that not a single child is left behind from getting his basic common needs. With this perspective for the protection of children and make sure their proper care Balashray was handed over to this organization on 5th Feb, 2016.

On the other hand as per Right to education act 2009, 18 children have been enrolled in nearby Bazra School. Here the main vision has always been children get quality education and they are not left with any kind of initial requirement.

In this regard children proper family follow up is done so that their status can be taped up and the right reaches at the right place.
Here our goals have been proactively aggressive. In Balashray children come from different kinds of back ground and their family status is also not so stable consequently, children are found illiterate so for those kinds of children try to make sure that they are added with some of the Skill India programmes where they are trained upon lots of other techniques. Since some of the children are illiterate so the training is according to their skills that’s has been our motto. On the other hand children who are literate they are given computer training at home and other social skills.
