 Manav Ekta Mission, an NGO founded by spiritual guru Sri M that recently concluded a cross country peace march, has decided to take care of the education of construction workers’ children.

 
Sharing his experiences of walking 7,500 km across 11 states in 18 months, Sri M  told media persons that he had noticed the plight of the children of construction workers and also those living in the slums. He said his foundation will start mobile schools for them.
 
To begin with, he said the Manav Ekta mission will start a pilot project in Bengaluru, wherein mobile vans with smart boards, computers, portable labs and teachers will move from one site to another and set up tented schools for the children of construction workers.

About public response to his peace mission, Sri M said people of all religions and regions are yearning for peace.
 
The peace march had ended at Srinagar, where, he claimed, people welcomed him with songs and flowers. He said in Kashmir, he was shocked to know about the plight of ‘half-widows’, Muslim women whose husbands have disappeared in the ongoing conflict, and who, as per Islam, cannot remarry. He said his NGO will also try to help these women.
 
His NGO, he said, would try to organise another peace march from Kutch to Kohima – covering the west-to east territory in the next leg.
