“If I ever had an opportunity to study properly, I would not have moved to Mumbai to work as a laborer”, says Sohan Sahu, a migrant laborer who left his home to earn a living. Understanding the importance of education, the migrant laborers are funding a school for the students in their village. The migrant workers are responsible for all the expenses, including salaries of the teacher, transportation, and other costs of the school.

Founded by migrant laborers

A group of migrant workers who make their living in other states has helped to establish an English language school. The school is founded in a small village in Jharkhand's Chatra district so that their children might acquire a quality education by living in the village itself. The Mansarovar Education Society was founded in 2017 in Kade village of Chatra.

Free education for poor students

The school initially had only 24 students, but now it has around 217 students. The students pay a nominal fee, while the poor and orphans receive free education, books, and transportation. The school holds four acres of land provided by residents from a community land bank. The school is affiliated with CBSE and is operated by a school management committee.

Aim to provide quality education

According to Sohan Sahu, the driving force behind the school's establishment, the goal is to ensure that no one is forced to migrate to Mumbai or other big cities to work as a laborer owing to a lack of education.
"We pledged to build a school in the village to ensure that every child had access to a high-quality education." "Every month, migrants in Mumbai pay money to keep the school running," said Sahu. After 29 years in Mumbai, he has returned to the village permanently to administer the school. "I left the village for Mumbai in 1993 and worked as a laborer there before becoming an auto driver," he explained.
