Help Us to Build School Building for Underprivileged Kids

About us:
Our Friends in Need Society is a science awareness and social welfare organization working for the sustainable development of marginalized and vulnerable people to ensure a quality life through empowerment, education, information, infrastructure development, healthcare service and economic self-reliance.

Background  of the Project:
We are working in rural, urban and semi urban areas of North 24 Parganas in West Bengal, India and the people are very poor and living in remote without fundamental facility, they need support for their children education. To provide modern and quality education and support OFINS has started a free primary level school in Badu-Mathgram village with 45 students in 2017 named “Anweshan-A Child Development Centre”. As of now the number of students reached near 100 and with in next two year it will be more than 250. 

Present Status:
At present, the Anweshan (Primary school) has the following status:
  • There is only one Class Room which accommodate all classes in 2-3 shift, shortage of Class rooms, furniture, educational aids   and some infrastructural facilities.
  • The human resource is ill-paid due to fund constraints. There are 5 teachers including headmasters.
  • The school was running by the support from individual’s donation which is not enough sufficient.
Project Need:
  • School Building - Class Rooms and Furniture
  •  Students uniform, Shoes and other accessories
  • Projector for smart class
  • Toilet and drinking water facility.
Justification:
The project area covers four village areas inhabited by the poor people without any financial capability to send the children to schools. The number of dropout and school non-going children is very high due to extreme poverty of the area.
ii)   Some of the area are very thinly populated and some of the students are to travel a few kilometers to avail the school, so the literacy rate is very low.
iii) The school has got the appreciation from local bodies and the present roll strength is about 60 with almost 99% of the students are minor community and from the poor families which cannot provide two full meals to the children every day.
iv) Initially the school has started as a non-formal school and it has bright prospect in future, future planning is to upgrade the school as a formal school upto 10th standard with hostel facility. So the school needs a source of fund till it becomes self sustained.
v)   There is no good quality free school in the 5 kilometer radius area under the project area.
