Susant Chakma

Since the college days of Mr. Susant Chakma, the founder of SNEHA, it was his cherished dream to set up schools of excellence to provide value-based education to children. In 1994, the ban of education to the Chakma and Hajong children by the State Govt. of Arunachal Pradesh acted as a catalyst to form SNEHA. He realized that education can only build capability and confidence of an individual or a society, and can bring a permanent and positive change in society. With this believe he formed SNEHA as non profit organization to help unprivileged society to pursue value based education in 2002. In July 2003, with the support of National Foundation for India (NFI), SNEHA started its first school at Diyun in Changlang District in Arunachal Pradesh.
At present, SNEHA is running 3 schools at Diyun, Bijoypur and Dharampur of Changlang District of Arunachal Pradesh and providing value based education to more than 1100 students. SNEHA aims to impart education not only to develop the knowledge, skills, and potentialities of the children but the human values like compassion, love, peace, tolerance also.
