Help Poor Meritorious Students Get Educated

Background

According to data from Government of India, the school dropout rate of West Bengal is significantly higher than the National average for both girls as well as boys. The average dropout rate at Secondary level for West Bengal hovers around 17% to 18% which is very high and needs immediate attention from Government as well as the society. What is worse is that the dropout rate has shown an increasing trend over the past few years.

We in Hindu Samhati believe that only education can build a strong Nation, so we decided to reach out at the grass root level and work on the ground level to address the problems faced by the children in continuing their education.

Sagar Haldar and his Mission

We met Sagar Haldar who has been working for promoting education at Primary, Secondary as well as Higher Secondary levels for the poorest of the poor families in various districts of West Bengal and has devoted his life for facilitating education of school going children from poor families.

Sagar Haldar belongs to a poor family from Kolkata, West Bengal. 11 years ago, Sagar's left hand had to be amputated due to cancer. However, the deadly disease could not stop him and instead of becoming despondent, Sagar chose to become a pillar of strength to others. In the present, Sagar, who is now in his early thirties, is married to Soma and they have a young daughter Mou. Soma earns by stitching clothes while Sagar is working full time for the education of underprivileged children.



The Root Cause of the Problem

While working with these underprivileged children, Sagar noticed that many them who were studying in Government sponsored schools, dropped out because their parents could not afford to buy the required books. The West Bengal Government provides only Bengali, English and Mathematics text books to class IX and X students. However, for studies, reference books are needed which these families cannot afford.

Goal of this Campaign

Sagar’s primary aim is to help those students who are meritorious but from poor families. In this attempt, he is going to distribute the required reference books to 500 students of Class IX and X for the academic year 2019-2020. The estimated cost of the set of books required for a student is approximately Rs. 1000. This makes up the goal of INR 5 lakh of this campaign.

He has selected schools like Taldi Mohan Chand Higher Secondary school, Kumrokhali Kedarnath High school, Shree Shree Ramkrishna Vidyaniketan, South 24 Parganas, Sitalkhuchi Gopinath High School, Gosairhat High School, Mahismuri High school in Cooch Behar, Balurghat High school, Khadimpur Girls' school, RCD girls' high school in Dakshin Dinajpur for the first phase of his mission.  Subject to availability of funds, Sagar plans to reach 20 to 25 more schools gradually. To fulfill his noble effort, he needs our support. our valuable contribution for this cause can help many potential students to continue their education.

I have started this campaign in favor of Sagar so that his dream comes true. I request you to support Sagar in his noble effort.
