Communities with Whom the Organization is Working

The community with whom SYM is working, are mostly tribal, like Gond, Kanwar, Baiga (PTG) and Pahari Korba(PTG) and marginalized and excluded group. The socioeconomic status is poor and lack of employment facilities, improper reach of Govt. welfare Schemes. Lack of awareness and unorganized people are not sufficient to raise their voice to gain their rights.

SYM Vision:

  • SYM vision is of a world in which all children realize their full potential in societies that respect people’s rights and dignity.
  • Creation of equal, equitable, self-reliant, progressive and non- violent society.

SYM Objectives:

Plan aims to achieve lasting improvements in the quality of life of deprived children in developing countries, through a process that unites people across cultures and adds meaning and value to their lives, by:

  • Enabling deprived children, their families and their communities to meet their basic needs and to increase their ability to participate in and benefit from their societies.
  • Building relationships to increase understanding and unity among peoples of different cultures and countries.
  • Promoting the rights and interests of the world’s children.
  • Work for the most Exploited, Excluded, and Victimized and Marginalized poor people.
  • Promotion of the universal human rights.
  • Conversation and reasonable consumption of natural resources.
  • Love towards our glorious heritage and culture.

Strategy of SYM:

SYM analyses all the problems using a simple rule that “Problem is like a tree, and every tree has its roots”. It assumes reasons for every problem and states that only its effects are visible, not the roots/reasons. So, the first step towards its solution is its understanding, which is done using Problem Analysis.
