Angel's Garden Montessori School is a personally run charitable educational institution in North Kolkata for the economically backward kids. The goal of the school is to impart Elementary English Language education, which is absolutely unaffordable for such children. The school has been running for 15 years with the help of personal funds of my friend Sudeshna Dey and her philanthropic mother Karabi Dey.
Sudeshna Dey is a friend of my ex-colleague and very close friend. Later, she also became a very good friend of mine. That is how I know her. I have no formal association with Angel's Garden school but since we are working on the NGO, that is in process of opening, she decided to ask for my help regarding the urgent funding of this school. Karabi Dey is Sudeshna's mother.
However, this year due to personal health issues, the family has not been able to garner enough funds and are running short. On top of that, the landlord of the building, the school is currently housed in, wants the school to be moved elsewhere by January 2019. This is an appeal on behalf of the Dey family to help in funding the move and other ancillary costs. The future of 20 children, who currently attend the institution, is now at stake. Please share the word, and help us in getting enough money to secure a new address and ensure continuity for the time being. Any contribution will be welcome. If you are not able to contribute monetarily, please share the word.
With regards to the expenditure plan; the school will be shifted to a temporary establishment where the rent is Rs. 10,000 per month. We are planning for keeping the school for 6 months as of now. So the total rental is 60,000. The remaining 90,000 is for broker fees. We are moving this on an urgent basis, as we need to vacate the current premises. However, Sudeshna Dey has submitted all the needed paperwork, for starting an NGO, to the West Bengal government. We are hopeful that once the necessary approvals are given, we can move the school to a more permanent location and also transfer the management to the new NGO.
