Working with the Community

Owing to its religious significance, SNP Punj developed a strong connection with Sitamarhi from his first visit in. Having seen first hand the extent of the social and economic disadvantage facing people in the local area, he initiated the Dayawanti Punj Model School as a part of a larger village development programme to empower the Sitamarhi community, generation on generation.

In the past 10 years, the school has proven to be a successful example, creating a new culture of education in the village. The school’s biggest achievement, apart from its inspiring alumni, has been in creating an appreciation for high quality education. As a result of this, parents who may not have been exposed to, or had access to, even basic education are now seeking out quality education opportunities for their children.

Even with this success, we are continuously working towards realising the original vision of Mr SNP Punj; to empower the whole community of Sitamarhi and its surrounding areas for generations to come.
