Some Dedicated Members of SBFO
Sahai, President – SBFO, a former Under Secretary
– Ministry of Human Resources and Development – Govt.
of India has visited many schools in many states to see and observe
the education level, after meeting Mr. Sudarshan Behl, who founded
and introduced Students’ Bright Future Organisation
to him, attracted him to join this noble cause of helping and
supporting poor and underprivileged students in continuing their
studies as he believes that education is the most vital tool for
manifestation of excellence and perfection inherent in a human
being and overall development of the personality of a child since
He feels that our educational system has miserably failed to provide
a holistic development of the people of India as many young men
and women are passed every year but they are not able to get good
jobs in the market.
completing a period of about 40 years of service with Ministry of Home Affairs – Govt. of India, I can easily understand the pain and problems
where the standard of education in government schools is not comparable
with public schools and probably this is one of the main reasons
for students from government schools who could not come in the
main stream of Nation.
Keeping the above fact in view, I decided to join SBFO which is
working sincerely for the welfare of poor and underprivileged
students to do some effective efforts for their welfare and very

I witnessed that there are several schools deprived of even the
basic amenities such as Drinking Water, Toilets and Desks etc.
that too in the vicinity of country’s capital where government
claims to spend around Rs. 8000 per student, I thought I should
be a part of a team that would bring it to the notice of concerned
authorities. This would be my contribution as Individual Social
SBFO has its mission and vision to work for the bright future
of students by bringing together and raising the issues and problems
of students, teachers and parents with the government so that
scarce resources of this nation could be put to better use.
Although it is a gigantic task but even mountains can be moved
by strongly willed persons.
SBFO is the first step in the right direction that attracted me
to be the part of this self motivated team.
have worked with Delhi Administration on various positions and
have joined SBFO to uplift the standard of education with government
run schools so that the basic right of good education can be given
to all students and they can become good and responsible citizens
Having more than 20 years of experience in handling administrative matters in senior class-I position in different Central Government Department, including Administrative Reforms and Public Grievance, before his retirement in 2002, Shri UdaiVir Sharma, now a free lance social activist, holds the post of Vice-President in the Students Bright Future Organization. He is associated with this organization since his retirement.
He deftly drafted a Management Study of Delhi Government schools containing about twenty five pages a few years back on behalf of this NGO who submitted the same to the Government of Delhi for consideration and implementation. Based on survey of more than 150 schools, the Study, inter alia, discussed the constitutional provisions containing directions to the Government of the day to implement certain educational policies for the welfare of the children, the maladies afflicting the management of government schools in Delhi, finding of various committees set up by the Government in regard to functioning of the Government schools and, above all, the concrete steps needed to be taken by the Government for improving management of government schools. The study was duly considered by the Government and they were pleased to implement almost all the recommendation, as is clear from a response from the then Director of Education contained in 6-pages letter received by the NGO in 2003.
Vice President- SBFO
a Yoga and Naturopathy practitioner, I always think that given
a conducive environment, every student can outshine. However,
I found that situation is very different and pathetic, not only
in the far flung villages but in the heart of capital which is
the fountain head of all wisdom and resources. Actually
it is due to apathy of various stakeholders, primarily the parents
who do not voice their concerns at appropriate levels. I
thought that by associating myself with SBFO would provide me
the opportunity to voice such basic concerns which hampers the
growth of students into the proud citizens of India.
I am working in the field of education from last 15 years with
government schools, government aided schools and private schools
and have been associated with various teacher training programmes
as a resource person. I have also contributed articles in social
science and political science books and teacher training manuals.
I am working for betterment of education particularly in government
schools thru SBFO.

are not enough to support this poised cause.

The SBFO is one of the most well-known NGO in our country with an aim on social development related to establishing the right of children towards free and compulsory education.
I deem it a great pleasure of good future that the end of my approx. 40 years of active career in the private sector industries at different senior management level a set of fortuitous circumstances have so developed and shaped themselves as to afford me an opportunity to be the associate members in governing body of SBFO for nearly a year.
I have also pursued a very comprehensive and authoritative work on the past performed by the founder members and their other associates of SBFO
Last but not the least I have dedicated myself as all my other social work activities to the SBFO’s development.
Om Prakash Pandey
Thousands of children are not going to schools upto this date, it is very strange that we cannot give them education even after 66 years of independence, some children are left with no option but to become rag pickers and spend their time in dust bins, they cannot spare their time to go to schools. It is noticed that 50 % govt. students run away from the schools in the month of April and July. The officers of Delhi Govt. cannot check and stop the truancy. SBFO has visited 150 schools to survey and the reports have been sent to Directorate of Education to improve the present sad state of affairs in Delhi Govt. Schools. Principals, Vice Principals and Teachers are trying to stop the truancy but have remained unsuccessful to do so. The members of SBFO have mentored the students and their parents and have advised them not to leave the school before 8th period. I will be active in future also to make sure that SBFO help, guide, monitor, coach and mentor all such student in continuing their studies.
