Priyanshi Educational, Cultural & Social Society (PECSS)


In the year 2002, an initiative was taken by a group of persons consisting of renowned personalities, having technical and administrative acumen in the spheres of Education, Livelihood, Health, Environment and Culture for making concerted and noble efforts aimed to improve the overall quality of life of people, particularly the tribal, women, children, downtrodden and deprived sections of Society, living both in rural and urban areas, so that they are able to lead a respectable, healthy and economically self-dependent life. This initiative was culminated in the formation of this Society.

The founding members of PECSS, while framing its objectives, have deliberately not bounded it within the limitation to work only for any specific section of Society, Area and/or Issue, but left it free to work for all needy sections of Society and to address issues as may come up from time to time without any bondage of limitation. Because while working within the limitations of specific sections/areas one binds itself within such given limits restricting it from intervening for other needy ones howsoever one may wish to do so. This situation was not acceptable to our Founding Members and hence PECSS was left free to intervene for any needy section of Society as per its specific requirement. Accordingly, on the one hand PECSS works for Tribal Youths and on the other, also for Youths of Dalit community as well as for the Leprosy affected persons. Keeping such limitless objectives in view, PECSS for the last 14 years of its existence has devoted and committed its efforts on the wide and varied range of issues, such as, i) Welfare and development of youths of Tribal, Dalit, Leprosy affected and Weavers community; ii) Working amongst the High Risk Group of IDUs (Injecting Drug Users) for prevention and care against the HIV/AIDS; iii) Developing awareness amongst the Tribal women for the usage and marketing of Sanitary Napkins; iv) Re-enrolment of School dropout adolescents and youths so that are able to complete their education; v) Providing employment based skilled trainings to youths to generate self-employment opportunities amongst them so that migration of youths may be minimized and they are able to earn their livelihood on sustainable basis; and vi) Actively involved in various IEC activities, including Universalizing Education; Developing Awareness on Science & Technology; Sensitizing community on Gender Equality; as well as for protection and promotion of Environment.
