Key Area of Concern
From The Secretary's Desk
One more year elapsed in our striving for bringing about qualitative change in the socio-cultural scenario of the rural Bengal, more specifically in the livelihood of the underprivileged section of the society. Let me take this opportunity to share with you how far we have succeeded in this striving till now.
The year 2020-2021 was undoubtedly a crucial year which had put up before us new challenges side by side with the old and familiar ones. I’m proud to say that MSS has been able to address most of these challenges with considerable success only because all of you stood by us with your collected might in this struggle. Let me thank you for this from the core of my heart.
As it is well-known to you, we’ve been working since long on five major thematic fields, namely women-empowerment, child care, community health and hygiene, water and sanitation, and environment protection. This year 2020-2021 has certainly marked a new milestone in respect of the progress of this work. We have achieved new records in self-employment of women, providing health and hygiene facilities to the community and addressing the environmental issues, the details of which are to be found in the relevant section of this report.
Apart from the above, we had to face several abrupt challenges in the year under mention such as wide scale devastation caused by super cyclone ‘AMPHAN’ and the terrible threat of the pandemic Covid-19. God willing, our timely response to the both, in the form of providing emergency relief and hygiene kits as well as making awareness drive, could be of considerable help to the suffering people.
However, the journey of social welfare is a never-ending course. With the passage of time the challenges are multiplying. We’re committed to dedicating ourselves to meet these challenges and ensure a happier and healthier society to the last drop of our blood.
I know you – our donors, partners, associates and well-wishers – have done your best in extending support to us. You have bound us in a bond of love and trust. No words are enough to thank you. MSS will remain ever obliged to you. We expect similar help and guidance from you in the years to come.
With faith and good will,
