Chairwoman of Indo German Remschied Ms. Helma Ritscher visit musahars ghetto of Ayer village of Varanasi India after interacting with people and according to there need PVCHR core team and PVCHR core group decided to build room in musahar ghetto with economic assistance from Inwent, Germany through DIG. In community meeting decide that utilization of room will not be done for individual purpose, all the person of musahar community will be owner of the room and elected representative have responsibility to look after it.

The first use of room will be, to run pre - primary center for small children, and other use of room will be for marriage purpose, for community work, meeting, and panchayat, of musahar community.

Sajjan musahar donate land for room, where kitchen and room are built side by side. With the collaboration of “Care House foundation” Ms. Parul Sharma food scheme run for musahar and others children, now children food is cooked in this kitchen.
In front of the community center there are 4 swings type play materials donate by Care house foundation. This Structure seems as model center, which provide facility of food, playing and education to children.

This center was started on 9/07/07 and known as Ekalavya center. In this center there is facility of table and chair to sit children and book, copy, crayon, pencil, drawing copy and other stationary is provided by Inwent and DIG.


Shivrampur primary school is in Khas tola Dalit village, in this school the number of classroom is less. Children have problem in sitting; due to this problem children are not getting good education.

Here also the process of classroom started like Ayer village. Elementary Education Officer (Basic Siksha Adhikari, BSA) admitted affidavit from PVCHR, that the owner of the will be education committee of village panchayat but not the PVCHR.

Now the classroom is constructed and furnished with table and chair to sit children.
