About Our Organization

The Ultimate Truth Preaching Mission (TUTPM) has emerged in the year 1999 to serve the poor, rural and tribal people of Mizoram and especially to the chakma people. The initiatives was taken by a few educated chakma youths, who have completed their education but decided to organize the poor rural and needy chakma people initially within the Lunglei District and later move out from the district boundaries and covered entire state of Mizoram.


These youths have also contacted the village elders and educated persons for guidance and later decided to form an association of people to transfer their thoughts into practical implementation. Therefore, the youth group has involved few more motivated and experienced persons in the team and thereby decided the name of the Association as “THE ULTIMATE TRUTH PREACHING MISSION(TUTPM) “ and thereby applied for registration under section XXI of societies Registration Act 1960 and got desired legal status for introducing planned development initiatives for extending organised development actions under the stated banner of the Mission.

The Registrar, Societies Registration Act 1860 was kind enough to register the Mission on 29th March 2000 and since then the Organization is actively engaged in extending its various developmental services for the promotion of the needy, poor, rural and tribal people of Mizoram by putting special focus on the development of the youths & women of the chakma tribes in its operations.


Therefore, the Organization is basically represents the voice of the poor, needy rural and tribal people, especially the chakma tribes of Tuichawng area of Lungsen Rural Development Block. The Mission is now fully engaged in the process of establishing some common development plat form on which community based welfare and development activities may be performed like social, economic and other welfare oriented interventions.

In this direction, the Organization interested in organizing the poor, needy, deprived, rural and tribal people with special focus on the chakma tribes in its operational areas and also wants to provide necessary supports and services for their social, economic and cultural up-liftment. It also interested to assist for their total empowerment to have a peaceful & harmonious life-style.

The Organization has started introducing its development activities on low-scale and based on the resource mobilized from and within the communities. The promotional efforts of the Mission was came into light when it has successfully supported few students
and provided support for some welfare activities for the needy, poor, rural and tribal people and made them visible before the community.

Later, the community has started more and more such activities by mobilizing the resources from the community.
Now, majority of its developmental activities are always be suggested by the community with due consideration of their actual needs and the Organization utilizes its
human resources for their proper executions. The TUTPM  has become established as a community based development institution after facing lots of troubles and difficulties to get accepted and extends its services after mobilizing required resources from the community.


Therefore, the Organization is now representing a complete democratic platform for the development of the people, which in other words quoted like By the people, For the people. The community stands for the Organization and the Organization  stands for community based development actions and has reached the stage to achieve this status by standing for each others on development.


However, to balance its development interventions, the Organization has started some specialized skills-upgradation trainings for the rural and tribal people interested to undertake some feasible income generation activities as a part of their self-employment towards ensuring a regular income for adoption of a life-style and move towards their sustainable livelihoods.


The Organization therefore, started organizing some vocational training with major emphasis on skill-upgradation, management and marketing of their finished products to have reasonable income for their labours, time and investment. The Organization has also utilizes its available resources in the form of educated youths to provide coaching to the dropouts and general students for their better education and make them a good citizen of the state and country.

uplift the most deprived community and bring them in the lights of sustainable development. In this direction, the Organization has started organizing women folk inclusive of the chakma and other communitites and decides for undertaking planned development activities.

However, due to lack of financial experiences, the Organization was unable to link these SHGS with credit sources and now the Organization is looking forward to avail some external resources to extend necessary supports to these SHGS for their total empowerment. The external support, the Organization is looking forward is the sponsorship of the Programmes/Schemes either from any Govt department or from any Funding Agencies who are working for the development of the people of Mizoram and encourage Self-Help movement.

About Sudip Chakma


About Sudip Chakma About Sudip Chakma About Sudip Chakma
Sudip Chakma was born on 15/11/1977 at Nunsury Village.  . His parents was migrated to another village, Tuichawng, due to the transfer of his father as a Government Primary School Teacher in 1986.

Education up to grade 7,  then went to Shillong for further studies, but couldn't continue study due to financial problem.

Afterwards, he came back from Shillong in 1994 and served as  a Volunteer Teacher in Government Primary School at Diblibagh, where his father was serving as a Headmaster. 

In 1997, his father was unable to serve as Headmaster due to his old age, so he  decided to apply for the job of Primary School Teacher in place of his father on COMPASSIONATE GROUND.
Fortunately, he was appointed as Primary School Teacher in Government Primary School in Diblibagh.

He has been a social and religious minded person since childhood, and he was always involved in activities of going to the Temple, helping others, spending time with the older generations, listening to the many different 
stories from them, which is all his passion and interests.

As he socialized he has seen that his people were behind the years in Education and modern life. He knew with his education and teaching skills, he may be able to help them. Many young and older individuals have a strong desire to learn but have no
resources to learn from.  In 1996, he joined and help register an organization with the name 'THE ULTIMATE TRUTH PREACHING MISSION'. He joined as primary member only.

After he joined this organization, he saw that no one was working with the outside world to develop the organization, for the members had no such idea how to start it, promote it, nor knew how to raise funds, nor  know or had access to internet, nor how to use the internet for such purposes. Finally in 1997, an internet provider came and set up a small internet system in the village. At that time, there were no cell phone companies and people in the village were still learning about telephones. Internet and cell phone is still new here to those days.

Though there's government school, but there's no school to get education for Buddhism Education.
His dream was to establish a Buddhist Mission School to give Dhamma Teaching to the  Chakma Buddhist children, for there is so much to teach them about they're ancestors and traditions.
So, he decided to buy a small Nokia phone, and began to utilize the internet and reach out to people.

After working for 3 years day and night with a small phone, he had gained the oppurtunity to get to know and meet so many wonderful people.

He reached out to Mr. Sachi G. Dastidar, a distinguished Professor, State University of New York and President of Probini Foundation, New York, USA. Mr Sudip shared with him the issues and problems effecting the Chakma people of Mizoram. He agreed to help and visited our village in 2012, he saw the lack of a school, and granted us funding to construct a Primary School.

Later in the year, Mr Sudip went to attend a conference in 2012 Kolkata, India, organized by Probini Foundation, where he met a good friend. Mr. Arindam Bannerji, he introduced him to a generous friend, Mr. Arun Kanti Bannerji, a retired 
mechanical engineer and Professor in New York, USA. Mr. Arun Kanti Bannerji agreed to sponsor the school monthly of INR 15,000 [$214 USD] and is still helping till today.

Mr Sudip Chakma also got an oppportunity to meet Mr. Mahendra Sagar, President of India Charitable Foundation, Massachusetts, USA., visit us in 2013. He helped us financially to keep building the school.

Mr Chakma wrote to Mahabodhi Society,Bangalore, India, for financial support for construction of the school building. After 3 years they have finally helped us with INR 24  lacks to help the school project. 

After getting financial help from the India Charitable Foundation and The Probini Foundation, Mr Sudip along with Mr. Rajesh Kumar Chakma, president of the Ultimate Truth Preaching decided to build Ahimsa School behind the Shanti Niketan Buddhist Temple and accordingly it has been built.

As the building was started in 2011 and the new school was finally established in 2016 as MAHABODHI RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL with the help of Venerable Ananda Bhante of Mahabodhi Society, Bangalore, India. We offer classes to children grades 1-10. Today, the school is up and running.

Mr Sudip felt the children will need to learn English in order to communicate with other children across the world on the internet so he has created a Volunteer profile on the internet, many great people from USA, France, Belgium and others in European countries have volunteered personally by visiting the school and giving English lessons and teaching other skills to our children.

 Luckily, two volunteers from USA, Ms. Dana Lee and Mr. Anthony Hugh, came to volunteer at our school. After seeing the problems the children face, they have decided to form a US based Organization to help the Mahabodhi Residential School. They have named their nonprofit 'The Seeds of Love Worldwide'. Ms Dana aside helping others poor Asian children on her own, was inspired and touched by what I was trying to achieve for the children of my village. As much as we need funds, I told her it would be difficult for her to help us after her own charity work, and suggested she form an organization as I did. She agreed and formed an organization and are also sponsoring our children. 

Besides all the above efforts to build a school for poor children, through the same methods Mr Sudip have also helped build the Shanti Niketan Buddhist Temple. 

He  helped building the Mahabodhi Buddhist Temple at Tuichawng  with the helped of Mr. Clifford Carter of USA and has visited us in 2017. This Buddhist Temple was built to provide Buddhist Teachings and Meditation to over 165 students and 65 different Buddhist families living in the Village. 

Today, he is seeking financial help in building a housing area for over 100 ordained Buddhist monks and novices at the Temple. Mr Sudip Chakma is 43 years old, and he will continue to serve his community until his last days on Earth. 

Above all,  He is happy with his accomplishments and he is grateful to all. 

Without the support and encouragement of generous people, it would not have been possible to achieve his goals.

About Mahabodhi Residential School


Mahabodhi Residential School (MBRS) 


Mahabodhi  Residential School (MBRS) was established in 2016 by a registered charitable organization named The Ultimate Truth Preaching Mission. The land was  donated by Mr. Nihar Kanti Chakma, a traditional member of Legislative  Assembly, and the building was financed by Venerable Anand Bhante, the  secretary of Mahabodhi Society in Bengaluru, India. MBRS offer moral and general education to the underprivileged  minority Chakmas children at the lowest possible means (at 50% percent  discount), and also provide lodging (hostels) for boys and girls. Since  this has been established in 2018, MBRS has shown improvement on board  exam results. Project Scope
  • Teacher Enablement
  • Remedial Education
  • Scholarship Program
  • Digital contents
  • Library Program
 Tuichawng is a village comprising about 600 families with a  population of about 3240 under Lunglei District of Mizoram, India. Most  of the families about 70% are shifting jhum cultivators and about 10%  are daily laborer’s. The cultivators can’t produce enough paddy due to  want of fertile land and daily laborer’s also don’t get work daily as  there’s no any factory and other farms or enterprise. So, about 75%  families are below poverty line. They have no financial ability to  educate their children in distant places. There’s a government primary  school and a government middle school where the children get their  elementary stage of education. A huge number of children complete their  elementary stage of education every year and 70% of whom are compelled  to stop their education due to poorness as there was no high school in  the village till 2015. They had to go to either Tlabung sub-division or  Lungsen Block to get admitted in high school which are 20 kilo meters  far from Tuichawng respectively.To solve their problem, with the help of  reputed NGO, Mahabodhi Society, Bangalore, the ultimate truth preaching  mission (tutpm) has established the ‘Mahabodhi Residential School’ from  the academic school session of 2016. A huge numbers of children get  admitted in the school from far and near Chakma villages like 20 to 30  above Chakma villages. They are treated as underprivileged children and  taken minimum school fee & hostel monthly fees. The school is trying  to give good quality of education to them.  As the new school it’s hard  to get good result in grade 10 Board Examination which is as follows: 2017 – 16 passed out of 34 2018 – 22 passed out of 30 2019 – 17 passed out of 50 2020 – 14 passed out of 44. Considering the other schools ours  result is better and we are trying level best to obtain better result.  As most of the students who came out successful in grade 10 Board Exams  are belongings to BPL families. They face very big problem in pursuing  their further studies unless they get sponsorship from any kind hearted  person or any charitable organization. If they get sponsorship, they can  pursue their further studies in Aizawl staying in hostel or paying  guest run by Chakmas. Now, 2 boys and 2 girls are being sponsored by Mr.  CY Han from Malaysia. In last academic session they did good result in  Grade 11 promotion examination. They shall be in Grade 12 by next  academic session. The Chakma people are like a sapling under a big tree. To  develop this community firstly they will need education in different  streams like, doctors, engineer, lawyer and in civil service etc. The  Chakma students are deprived of all the above educational streams. They  do not get facilities from the government to make their career after  grade 12.  Every year we have meritorious students who used to passed in  first and second division in grade 10 & 12 board examination. But  unfortunately, Their parents are not able to afford them in continuing  their education to make their career and ultimately they had to stopped  their education. The Chakma people can’t raise their VOICE on any kind  of discrimination as they’re weak in each and every way. They afraid to  the Majority people of Mizoram. “A child without education is like a bird without wings” It goes without saying that education is essential for creating  quality and eliminating barriers and discrimination on the basis of  race, gender and economic status. A nation’s progress and development  depends on the availability of this basic civil right of education to  all its citizens.The more knowledge we get, we grow and develop more in  the life. Being well educated never only means to earn certificates and  good salary from the recognized and reputed organisation companies or  institutions however it also means to be a good and social person in the  life. It helps us to determine whether something is good or bad for us  and other persons related to us.  The first purpose of getting good education is being good citizen  and then being successful in personal and professional life. We are  incomplete without a good education because education makes us right  thinker and correct decision maker. In such a competitive world,  education has become a necessity for human beings after food, clothe and  shelter. It is able to provide solutions to all problems; it promotes  good habits and awareness about corruption, terrorism, and other social  issues among us . Education is the most important tool offers inner and outer  strength to a person. Education is the fundamental rights of everyone  and capable of bringing any desired change and upliftment in the human  mind and society. We too should get proper education by understanding its real  value and get benefited completely. Our aim of getting education should  be to help other needy people of the society to get them over the  weaknesses and superstitions. Education has unbelievable power which  keeps us away from evil powers, helps us in making self dependent and  provides us new possibilities and opportunities to become a problem  solver and excellent decision maker. It keeps our mind calm and peaceful  by maintaining the balance among body, mind and soul. Through the key  of education one can open his/her difficult lock of the success. Many  people do hard work for whole day just to earn some money for getting  two times of food in the absence of good education. So, education is  must for the “CHAKMA” people to have a better and happy lifestyle.

Your gift helps us provide a truly vulnerable child with 3 wholesome meals per day, clothing, basic education costs, health care, and contributes the running costs of your child's sponsorship fund.

Free Relief during covid-19 pandemic


COVID-19:
You can now contribute food to daily wage, migrant workers through Mahabodhi -Food Relief campaign
Mahabodhi -Food Relief's initiative called Youth Feed Tuichawng Village is a fundraising campaign to provide Free Relief of dry ration to the poor across the villages of Tuichawng, who are the most affected by the lockdown.

Due to the complete lock down across the Tuichawng areas, the most affected have been the daily wage workers who are without work or government support and therefore are unable to be providers for their homes. The situation has gotten worse in the past few months as these workers have no earnings. Things might get worse as the lockdown doesn't look like it's going to end anytime soon. However, this non-profit based in Tuichawng, Mizoram, India is doing the needful to help these hungry villagers of Tuichawng and surrounding areas.

We have been successfully distributed free relief to 700 families till today.

Please extend your helping hands to provide food for these poor peoples.

House Burning Project


House Burning Project House Burning Project House Burning Project
On 8th March, 2020, 5 (five) houses were burnt into ashes when the owners were out for day work in the field. Very little  belongings could be saved by the neighbours from the houses. The Village Council called an emergency meeting to provide relief measures to the victims families with the village NGO’s and the prominent persons of the village. The members of meeting decided to raise fund like cash, rice, clothes & utensils. It was also decided to report the matters to the Government of Mizoram for relief assistance. Accordingly, the matter was reported to the SDO (Civil) Tlabung and the BDO Lungsen. Enquiry was done from the BDO office but no relief measures have been provided till date.
 
The local NGO’s have collected cash, rice, clothes and utensils from the village and distributed these articles to the victims families along with some cash to meet the immediate expenses (but very small amount). The NGO’s have collected bamboos etc. to make some small huts for the victims families, as they’re staying in their relatives homes and some in the community hall.

The matter was brought to the notice of TGG Foundation by TUTPM, and they have asked us to call a meeting in the presence of the village head and other prominent people of the village to take the support of the local community to help in getting the natural materials and construction. At they're end the matter was presented to the  ethics committee for approval, who have requested for a written confirmation from the village head.  The TGG Foundation have received an official confirmation letter from the President of Village Council (PVC) on 26th April 2020, requesting for support and  authorising us to gain the necessary financial aid from the public to help them rebuilt their houses before the rain starts. 
They are overwhelmed by the participation of the village community and the NGos in helping the victims to meet the basics and collecting the natural materials available locally to start the construction work.

Finally, The TGG foundation have been able to raised fund according to the needs for the five fire victims families.

This development model is unique since the local community came forward to volunteer the construction work, TGG Foundation contributed the raw material cost that had to be purchased and TUTPM (a local NGO) monitored and coordinated the activities. A house with a budget of Rs.75000/- has been completed by just Rs.37110 + the effort put in by responsible humans. Another four houses will be constructed soon.
