FLOOD RELIEF IN INDIA
Most part of the Madhepura and Saharsa districts in Bihar is inundated and under water after the river Kosi washed away its bank and flowed over four districts. Millions of people became homeless and spending their days under trees and open sky. The sannyasins and volunteers of the Bharat Sevashram Sangha, after setting up a relief centre on 26th August at Sarbanarayan Singh Ramkumar Singh College, Saharsa, are distributing cooked food to nearly 10,000 flood-affected people at Cachra and Karaya villages of Sourbazar Block and remote villages of Biratpur School area of Sonbarsa Block in Saharsa district and Sabaila Sinheswar etc. villages of Madhepura district. Dry food stuff of chira, gur, sattoo, baby food, clothing, polythene, tarpaulins etc. are also being distributed to nearly 5000 flood-affected people daily. Relief materials are also being distributed among the flood affected people who have taken shelter-houses at 28 relief centres setup by Govt. at Saharsa town. Besides, Sangha's relief work has been expanded in Purnia district also.
HEALTH CARE AT
CANCER CENTER IN MUMBAI

The Sangha setup a Cancer Care Unit that offers specialized consultation, a chemotherapy day-care centre and a home for cancer patients. The chemotherapy day-care centre provides specialized consultation for cancer patients under the supervision of eminent medical oncologists. Plans are underway to expand the existing capacity and infrastructure. The unit cared for 2000 patients last year and was unable to cope with the increased inflow of patients due accurate diagnosis is central to complete treatment and care. A Diagnostic Centre is therefore being conceptualized.
HEALTH AWARENESS CAMP
Medical teams organize health awareness camps in BSS schools and educational institutions. A total of 6116 students have been examined so far and given treatment when necessary. Special clinics held over the past two years for the care of primitive tribal groups have benefited 3793 patients.
EDUCATION PROGRAM
A large majority of India’s population has little or no access to educational opportunities. Realizing that the spread of education in rural and semi urban areas is crucial to the development of the nation, the Sangha operates more than a 100 institutions in the country providing quality education to disadvantaged children. This combined with vocational training programs empower the youth to be self-sufficient and economically independent. The Sangha runs institutes for formal and non-formal education which include primary schools, night schools, junior basic schools, junior high schools, high schools and colleges. We focus on a holistic approach with academic education imparted in harmony with moral and spiritual teachings. Students are taught to respect the traditions and culture of their country, realize the dignity of labor and the fundamental principles of human life, which contributes to building their character.
TRIBAL WELFARE
Our Tribal Welfare Program is an extensive initiative covering the areas of education, health and income generation for weaker communities. Our activities are aimed at enabling these communities to be self-sufficient with sustainable employment opportunities and assisting them to be mainstreamed into society. The Sangha operates Tribal Welfare projects across India.
ORPHAN CARE PROGRAMS
The Sangha, in an attempt to remedy this situation runs 17 free days school (one high school and 16 primary school), providing each of the 1557 pupils with mid-day means uniforms, shoes, books and stationery. Although the Government of India has chipped in with support of 750 wards, many students have been denied due to financial constraints. The Sangha also runs residential schools for boys and girls separately with the Indian Government bearing the expenses in both, with much emphasis laid on character building and extra-curricular activities. Computer education programs have also been initiated for tribal students. The Sangha also has support systems that assist these students in continuing education through its centers throughout the country.
INCOME GENERATION
Our income generation programs reflect our belief that social equity is impossible without economic empowerment. The two have to go hand in hand and complement each other. The Sangha is active in providing vocational training and skill up gradation leading to sustainable employment opportunities. Agro faming has also been assisting tribal's farm a variety of vegetables and fruits using modern tools and technology. The Sangha has setup a Agro Horticulture Project or a model demonstration farm which imparts training to local farmers to help them derive maximum yield from their meager resources. The Sangha also imparts vocational training through weaving and knitting centers, cane and bamboo centers as well as jute and handicraft centers.
