For wholesome community development, it is important that child protection is considered to be a vital part of the mission of the organization. This can be done if all the areas of development are altered progressively ensuring child friendly environment with child right and protection being the central focus.
From slum development for better living conditions, to education and hygiene and environmental protection, UTSAH’s Comprehensive Community Development Programme encompasses all these areas that are vital in order to reach our goal of ‘inclusive betterment of society’.

Human rights are inalienable rights inherent to all human beings, whatever the nationality, place of residence, sex,age, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, language, or any other status. All human beings are equally entitled to our human rights without discrimination. Non-discrimination is a cross-cutting principle in all human rights laws.UTSAH assumes the obligation and duty to respect, to protect and to fulfil human rights through necessary interventions. UTSAH seeks to protect individuals and groups against human rights abuses and take positive action to facilitate the enjoyment of basic human rights especially women and child rights.



Growth of slums in Guwahati, a rapidly developing city, is a vital issue. UTSAH has an inclusive slum-development programme, which consists of all aspects of community livelihood, such as education, hygiene, sanitation, health, environmental care and art and culture.


UTSAH has involved itself in educating the underprivileged with great passion. After all, education is the most important weapon for the overcoming the malice of poverty. Scholarships, funded by the Ruby and Pankaj Barua Foundation are offered to the rural students. The UTSAH on-site school (with SMILE foundation, India) runs successfully with the organization’s aid, where school children are encouraged to secure brighter futures they would own.


In a country where to be born a girl is often still considered a burden, the position of women is not yet recognized. The conditions are worse in the poorest communities, where the women, along with their children, miss out on various opportunities that we take for granted in our lives. Through workshops, discussions and awareness programmes, women and child right issues have been brought to the forefront by UTSAH.


Indian State Health Care has yet to reach the slum areas and provide them with the healthcare they deserve. Hundreds of people in India, specially the ones living in slum areas have no access to basic amenities such as clean water or even restrooms. UTSAH has aided the slums in acquiring such essential facilities. Medical and health camps, in association with Ayursundra, International hospital and Rotary club, along with rehabilitation, are offered as a part of UTSAH’s programme.

Slums in India have been distorted into centers of pollution and environmental damage, due to lack of basic awareness.

UTSAH aims to inculcate a value based understanding in the minds of the young and the old about the importance of environment conservation and care.
