Lynthi Khasi School – Umsawwar – a small village located in East Khasi hills of Meghalaya is saturated with agriculture based shepherd community whose principle livelihood is making can and bamboo sticks and animal rearing. The concept of a model school is a distant dream to them till date, when we FSTians took up the challenge and efforts to setting up a village school for providing elementary education to the small children of these shepherd communities.
Thus there was the primary requirement of modifying this entire school to facilitate its smooth working. As result of this foundation for Social Transformation – enabling North East India (FST) a community based indigenous philanthropic organisation supported the dreams of this visionary which resulted in the establishment of "Lynti Khasi School. Lynti Khasi is the interface between children’s knowledge and grown-ups’ knowledge. Lynti Khasi makes a humble, determined and collaborative effort to contain ignorance wherever it exists.
To make its effort effective, Lynti Khasi begins by involving children to perform a decisive role in influencing grown-ups in various educative programmes for children, eventually leading to the creation of a favourable environment for the children to grow up into sensible and responsible grown-ups. Thus, a realistic process of empowerment begins with the Lynti Khasi School.
