Social Welfare

  • The recent setting up of Sudha Diary (opening and supervision was managed by Dr. Binod Kumar) has completely transformed the social milieu in Katesar. Sudha Dairy Booth has a channel for milk collection from farmers and a channel for sales & distribution, and this enterprise has completely transformed the social milieu and thought process triggering the beginning of a reverse movement to Katesar and nearby villages.
  • Kusum Foundation has started a small library that enables villagers to have easy access to newspapers, periodicals, magazines, and books. The library has a telephone and video cameras for better supervision & management.
  • Katesar village received power supply for the first time in the year 2004 after the persistent efforts of Kusum Foundation.
  • A branch of a major public sector commercial bank, The Central Bank of India opened adjacent to Kusum Foundation in village Katesar, Chapra, in Saran district, Bihar.
  • The villages generally lack medical facilities and to mitigate this problem, our Foundation organizes periodic doctor visits to the villages. This helps the villagers seek basic diagnostic treatment at a nominal fee or no fee.
  • We have arranged multiple short-term English-speaking courses to help the villagers feel more confident and get better career opportunities.
