Bihar (1).jpg



Bihar, located in Eastern India, stands as the country's third most populous state and the 12th largest by area. Despite its vast size, urban areas constitute only 11.27% of Bihar's population, underscoring its predominantly rural character. Notably, nearly 58% of Bihar's populace is under 25 years old, making it India's state with the highest proportion of young people.

Hindi serves as Bihar's official language, alongside Urdu, with native tongues such as Maithili, Magahi, and Bhojpuri widely spoken. The state recorded a staggering 104,099,452 residents in the 2011 Census, achieving the title of India's most densely populated state with 1,106 persons per square kilometer. In 2020, the sex ratio stood at 1090 females per 1000 males, reflecting the demographic balance.

Bihar has made strides in urbanization, reaching a rate of 20% by 2021. However, it faces formidable challenges in health, education, and socioeconomic disparity. The state contends with high rates of poverty, malnutrition, and infant mortality, alongside a literacy rate of 68.15% in 2020, with significant gender disparities.

The district of Jamui exemplifies these challenges. Situated in southeastern Bihar, Jamui is marked by underdevelopment and socio-economic inequalities. It has a population of approximately 1.76 million and a literacy rate of 57.57%, well below the national average. Identified as an aspirational district by NITI Aayog, Jamui grapples with issues ranging from high crime rates to limited access to quality education and healthcare.

In response to these pressing issues, PARAS India has focused its efforts on Jamui, particularly among the Mahadalit communities. Through initiatives in education, health camps, and social awareness campaigns, PARAS India strives to uplift the marginalized, reduce inequalities, and improve overall quality of life in this underserved region.
