Help Us Run Our School For The Tribals And The Poor In Purulia

Purulia is one of the poorest districts in West Bengal, famous for its red soil and great places for trekking. It is one of the most backward tribal districts, with an abysmal record in health, education, and other factors.

Turnstone Global's residential school in the Belabahal gram panchayat is a small attempt in providing quaity English Education to tribal children in the area.

The kids are awesome, they are studious, hardworking and can surprise you with picking up new technology concepts really fast.

Our volunteers try to visit once or twice a month and try to augment the efforts of the teachers and staff.

There are many basic needs that we are trying to fund, computer equipment, sports equipment, teachers salary, a sports instructor's salary, among others.

A small contribution will go a long way in bringing sunshine into a child's life!!

Hello Dear friends!! Its with great joy that I can share that we have now bought the Inverter for the school with the amount raised.

What is the impact? We had seen power cuts almost every alternate hour during our earlier stays at the school.
 
During peak summer there would be 6-8 hours of power cuts. For a residential school it is a major concern.

With this inverter, now we have uninterrupted power supply in one of the school buildings

.

This has significantly improved the quality of classes.

Thanks again to all the supporters!!

Next step: We are planning to buy the following to augment the school:

1. A fridge: The residential school lacks a fridge, hence it is difficult to store persihables like poultry, fish, etc that is necessary for a healthy diet for the students.

2. An LCD TV: The school has a good computer lab, as its a centre for National Skill Development program under which rural youth is getting trained on computer skills. We are planning to set up an electronic classroom to enhance the learning experience for the school and skill development students

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for your support.

Summers are here. There is scorching heat in Purulia. With it comes power cuts, often for 5-6 hours at a stretch. Studies are getting disrupted.

So we need an inverter for our school- costs around 9-10 Thousand rupees. You will be happy to know that we have raised money - rs 3500 f via offline donations from my colleagues- to be used to buy sports equipment for the school.

Our teachers are working with great zeal - and looking forward to your support for the same!!
