The year 2018- 19 was challenging to the JSS.
The natural disaster which came in the form of heavy floods swallowed many areas including the tribal settlements also. Knowing the importance of involvement, it was a time when I could’nt go for a second thought to any help and support asked for. Deep down in me, I could feel the urge to help.I always want to give, not to take. And the JSS rose to the situation providing the Nilambur Muslim Orphanage Committee building, (the Parent Organisation of the JSS) as a Rehabilitation Centre.
The coastal area from Vallikkunnu to Ponnani, Which constituted one of the major percentage of the beneficiaries of the JSS was also badly affected. Responding to the situations which deserved equal consideration, the JSS prioritised it’s activities co ordinating with the affected Panchayaths/ Municipalities. This true potential of the organisation, in which I also adore a top position, was utilise with the grace of The Almighty.
To rekindle the vision, a number of projects came on the way of the JSS to add to the glitter. Some for the rural area( DDU-GKY, NRLM), some for the urban(NULM), some for the Minority( Nai Manzil) and exclusively for Soft Skill Development( Nai Roshni) - all - all point to the eradication of poverty, economic development through Skill trainings etc. Since backwardness is the lack of education and opportunities, placement make our vision a reality. Coming out of convevtional education, we have been focussing on job oriented vocational trainings. The Tagore Literacy Awardfor literacy in 2018 was of course a big achievement, a recognition and overall a consolation in spite of the difficulties and hurdles which came on the way. And together like a family, the JSS go forward with no conflict - no strife - to face the awaiting challenge

The JSS has always been after solutions to improve education.
It has stood with a vision and determination and kept the connections with the grassroot level of the society alive. The Govt’s welfare schemes and the implementations of the policies were fruited in a grand victory. They have become a bridge to fill the gap in unemployment. The raw youth with a dynamics for change have been driven to skill trainings with the vision of income for the families by reimagining the future.
The JSS has won the hearts and the minds of the people through the scheme Bharatiya Jan Aushadhi Pariyojana. It has also lent a hand to the inmates of Kannur Central jail through skilling them and projected itself. The staff have been retrained to use new technologies.
The relentless pursuit and perseverance of the Director and the Personnels progressed with one stop destination for success where dreams meet reality. The way to the top - and already ranked one among the top - was the result of the planning and implementation capacity of the unparelled organiser.And the JSS exists immortal without lacking the lusture and knowing no bounds.V Ummar Koya,
