I am the first tribal youth in India who has started the first Space Science Centre – Anuja Space Observation Center in the district called Kasa.
The center provides free space observation information through telescopes and other scientific instruments and training to children in rural areas at no cost.
The center organizes many science related programs such as science exhibitions, science education trips, misconceptions about eclipses, eradication of superstitions.
To date, over 10,000 children have visited the center.
The main objective of this center is to get maximum number of children from rural areas to shine in this field of astronomy nationally and internationally.
