It is rightly said, “Books are man’s best friend”. However, books are inaccessible to a large number people because of their low purchasing power which is sometimes perhaps not even sufficient to pay for their basic needs like food and shelter. Underprivileged people are denied their basic rights and are thus victims of the vicious circle of poverty. This vicious circle can be broken by educating these people that can be done if books are made accessible to these people. SUWS believes that today’s children are tomorrow’s leader and hence aims at reaching those children who are denied their basic right to education due to inability to afford education. Hence, SUWS organizes various book distribution campaigns throughout the year to provide free books and stationery to underprivileged children along with other educational materials like exercise books, pen, pencils, erasers and school bags.

These rights encompass freedom of children and their civil rights, family environment, necessary healthcare and welfare, education, leisure and cultural activities and special protection measures. It outlines the fundamental human rights that should be afforded to children in four broad classifications that suitably cover all civil, political, social, economic and cultural rights of every child:
