"I slept and dreamt that life was joy;
I awoke and saw that life was service;
I acted and behold, service was joy."
- Rabindranath Tagore
The Mahakali Caves Road - Poonam Nagar area is full of tall high-rises and home to thousands of cosmopolitan professionals. Yet tucked away in pockets lie teeming tenements and shanties home to hundreds of thousands of the less well to do. For them life is a daily struggle for the things we take for granted - a scramble for water, queues for the toilets, a desperate effort to earn enough for a meal for the family. In such a setting who can afford the money for fees, books, uniforms and the extras that schools demand. The children of such families naturally drop out of or don't go to school at all. The parents are helpless. The children suffer.
This is where MSDSS extends a helping hand. We have tied up with schools in the area to provide monetary scholships to those in financial difficulties thus enabling them to continue their education.
In 2013 we have sponsored 102 meritorious students, up from 76 last year.
We also provide monetary support to charitable organisations like Ramkrishna Mission, Bharat Sevashram, and to old age homes in the area.
We wish to do so much more. We do so because we care.
We are grateful to all the organisations and individuals who have supported our endevours. We seek your continued support.
If you wish to help or to know more, please mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Every child dreams of becoming somebody someday, to go way beyond the distance their parents did. But for many the dream dies to the harsh reality of no money for school fees, books, and all those extras most of us take for granted. The need to earn a living, of any kind, is paramount and thousands of bright young minds are lost to the mundane unskilled workforce.
At MSDSS we have been focussing on extending a helping hand to the financially weaker sections in the Mahakali Caves Road - Poonam Nagar area of Andheri by providing scholarships to the deserving for their school education.
Now we have embarked on an ambitious project to support financially challenged students for further and higher education. This goes way beyond providing fees and books. We shall take the full responsibility for the complete education of the selected students through school to college and beyond. Other than the financial aspect we intend to provide mentoring, tutoring, counselling, industrial and corporate exposure to ensure that these bright minds have the opportunity to flourish and join the mainstream of society.
We call it Shiksha Ki Ashayen.
