Bahujan Hitaya Boys Hostel, Amravati
Enabling the most marginalized children to access quality education and prospects for a better future, plus other related objectives from SDGs, Indian Government policy and T.B.M.S.G. Policy
Trailokya Bauddha Mahasangha Sahayak Gana Pune Trust recognized the urgent need for education among rural students in Amravati district. In response, the trust established a residential hostel for boys called Bahujan Hitaya Boys Hostel in 1994, located in Bhumiputra colony, Amravati, Maharashtra.
Inspired by the words of Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, a great social reformer and architect of the Indian Constitution, who believed that education is crucial for human development, the trust operates this residential hostel in Amravati. Every year, the hostel accommodates 24 students aged between 10 to 18 from marginalized and disadvantaged communities.
These boys come from rural and remote tribal areas where malnutrition is prevalent. After completing primary school, they lack access to further education. As a result, many students lose their opportunities for a better future and end up working as laborers. While some manage to benefit from government schemes, the majority face a dark future.
To address this situation, Bahujan Hitaya Boys Hostel provides a safe and nurturing environment with proper accommodation, food, and essential facilities for education, health, and personality development. This enables many boys from disadvantaged communities to pursue their education and fulfill their dreams.
The impact of this project is remarkable. Over period, 105 students from the hostel have become Engineers, Dentists, Chartered accountants, MBA Graduates, and have secured government and private sector jobs. Additionally, 161 students are currently pursuing their education at various levels, including degrees, master’s degrees, and schooling. These students are now giving back to the communities where they originally came from.
Thanks to the help of Karuna Trust U.K. and the Social Welfare Department of Maharashtra State, this initiative succeeded. The project is really happy to see how it has positively changed the lives of many students. We would like to keep supporting this community in the future.
