From the Desk of President
Dear Patrons and Well Wishers,
It gives me immense pleasure in introducing the Assam Sishu Kalyan Sadan, Sundarbari to all of you. This quaint little abode came into existence in 1956, on the outskirts of a then quiet little town called
Guwahati. The objective was quite simple, to give a home to those kids who were abandoned and underprivileged.
Situated on a piece of 16 bighas land donated by late Kamakhya Ram Barua, the Sadan initially functioned as the “Assam Nari Aru Sishu Kalyan Sadan”. However on 25 April 1957, as per the decision of the then Managing Committee the institution was rechristened as “ Assam Sishu Kalyan Sadan” and registered under the 1860 Society Act.
Since its inception, the Sadan has prioritised transparency over everything else, a rare feat among such institutions. Coming from a banking and accountancy background for almost 40 years now I cannot but emphasize the need for such sound transparent policy.
Today the Sadan is home to 40 girls between the ages of 18 and 7. While most of the girls are enrolled in schools, some of them are also pursuing technical courses in fashion technology, food technology, nursing, and hospitality management. This reflects the endeavour of the Sadan to enable these children to have strong careers tomorrow and become self-reliant and successful citizens of the society.
In more than 50 years of its existence, a 100 children have passed out through its gates , all self-reliant all strong. Yet, a lot more remains to be done. What we seek , in the end, in our very limited capacity is to stand out as a beacon of home. A beacon of hope for all those who are scared to dream. And this is the message, we want to send out to the world. I on behalf of the whole team wish you to be a part of this journey.
Shri Parmeswar Sharma
President, Assam Sishu Kalyan Sadan
