The north-east is a beautiful place with scenic mountains and lots of greenery. But these mountains and hilly regions itself have made it difficult to develop good roads and infrastructure. Some children walk 2 hours every day just to go to school, while some can’t. Thus getting a basic right to education becomes difficult. Lack of access to higher education, basic healthcare, food and water makes it very challenging to live in those villages. This has led to issues such as unemployment, poverty and even rise in crime rates.
When Swamiji was exposed to these realities of the people in this part of our country, he firmly decided to put forward his helping hand. In order to bring about sustainable development in the households of these children, he started adopting them, to nurture them till they stand up on their own feet.
