Story

The Tea Gardens of Assam have captive labourers working hard for a refreshing cup of tea for all of us. The workers of tea gardens form almost a second class citizenry. They do not have land rights, minimum wage is not ensured, health facilities are poor and many other problems plague the lives of tea workers. The only way to emancipate this class is through education. There are hundreds of problems in delivering good quality education to these children.One of the major bottlenecks is the home environment. Usually the home environment is not conducive for education. The rampant alcoholism renders the home as a noisy and order less place.

In this situation, the only way out is to remove these children from that environment and provide a study centre where they can go and learn whenever they want to but especially in the evenings. Computer literacy will also be a part of such study centres.  A group of volunteers are working towards this and need your help. A belief that change is possible drives us.

I had formed this volunteer group before joining the IAS.

The plan is as follows:
Land requirement: Site already decided.  It is donated by villagers
Construction of Study Centre: 2 rooms with CGI roofs: Rs. 1 Lakh 
Purchase of furniture, tables chairs etc  and racks etc for books and other materials: Rs. 30000
Initial stock of Books and other TLMs and some stationery: Rs. 15000
Electricity Connection, wiring and Computer, printer and accessories: Rs. 40000
Miscellaneous expenses: Rs. 5000 
Total Rs. 200000
Felicitation: Passing Class X is a commendable achievement here.
