Shishu Sewa Samiti (Infant Service Committee), a nonprofit and non-government organization was established on 6th February 1984 in Biratnagar Nepal.
This organization was founded with a view of providing basic education to the backward rural population, so as to enable them to become health conscious, and to serve the poverty stricken women and children of that community.
Initially, a fund was created collecting Rs.500 from each member of SSS which was used to distribute free injection and medicine to pregnant women and children suffering from diarrhea and dysentery who visited Koshi Zonal Hospital. This service continued regularly for one year after which SSS was legally recognized when it got itself registered (Reg. No. 50), on the 1st of Shrawan, 2041 BS., at the Chief District Office, Morang. Then on 23rd Asoj, SSS became a member of Samaj Kalyan Parishad (Reg. No 466).
SSS, which started by serving poor pregnant women and sick children from backward rural population has now expanded its area of activities which includes health, education, good nutrition, children rights, etc. To provide these services and to cater the rural backward population SSS has begun training programs which focuses mainly on helping the socially neglected and economically backward community ascertain their right and presence so as to make a forceful claim in all social activities.

Vision: Provide basic education and health related information to the women and children of socially and economically backward rural community to enable them to lead a healthy life and contribute to the society as a whole.

With the active participation and help of SSS, children and women who are deprived of education and health can contribute, through different social work and activities, to the process of development thereby helping them lead a respectful life.
