Social Service and Caring for the Community:
Social work develops a spirit of brotherhood amongst men. The main mission of students is to study diligently, but it is equally important to be selfless to care for humanity, and understand the sufferings of underprivileged sections. This helps them to inculcate values and to foster global brotherhood and peace. Understanding the importance of life skills education, Happy Days School gives the students exposure to our social environment, and tries to develop values in them. Happy Days School has adopted two villages and our students visit here on a regular basis. They help the villagers besides creating awareness amongst them on various social, health and sanitary issues. Students distribute clothes and blankets, conduct medical camps and take up projects to keep the villages clean, Students are also given chances to visit orphanages and old-age-homes and are sensitised towards the under privilegedin our society
The school has adopted two Sahariya tribal villages Kathmai and Binega and regularly holds medical camps in these villages. We have built a wall around the government school and water tanks, a kitchen and also done tree plantation. Some of these activities come under SUPW for the children. We have also provided teaching aids in the government school have helped to decorate the class- rooms, provided swings for the children.
Kathmai and Binega have a tribal population of Sehriyas who remain in the same condition that they were in fifty years ago. They face a multitude of problems from water scarcity, poor health care, lack of income generation opportunities, malnourishment. Happy Days School is trying to promote education amongst the Sahariya Adivasi tribal children. Previously these children were enrolled in the local government school in their village but faced various problems such as absenteeism of teachers, overcrowding of classes etc. Upon enrolling six children in the M.P Board affiliated Section of Happy Days we realized that despite having finished Class 8 from the government school the children could not even do the work of Class Five. After six months of intensive coaching these children are now enrolled in the MP Board School. At present we have 27 Sahariya children enrolled free of cost in Happy Days School
