It is allied with registered labor unions and slum-dweller rights organizations across the country and in Kolkata and has thus far relied primarily on individual donations from friends of the organization. Since we are particularly strapped for funds now and need to sustain our childcare centers, we thought we would ask for help.
where they receive preschool education and nutritious meals. In addition to the costs of cooking for the children and maintenance of the facilities, one teacher and two ayahs are also employed from the neighborhood to be engaged in childcare and education, and are paid nominal salaries of Rs. 5000 and Rs. 2500 a month for their services

(If we cross this target, we will be sustained for longer!) But even a little from you goes a long way in helping children of unorganized workers be taken care of while their parents go to work (and encourage the mothers to go to work), eat nutritiously, learn the basics and get used to going to school until they are old enough to!.
Recent cylcone Aamphan has completely destroyed the houses and schools of sundarban areas. Number of villages are still under water till now. We would like to offer them basic clothes, school text books, tiffin box, water bottle and first aid kits. ORS is one of the most important things for them now as the cyclone brings gastro epidemic in the whole locality. And also for the high school kids, we would like to lend our support so that they can prepare and sit in the next board exam. We sincerely believe that its our duty to help them grow and overcome this natural disaster.
Our focus is to provide basic education kits to the children of schools adopted by us and play a role in their overall development.
Most of our school children come from nearby slums and a majority of their parents are migrants. Such families cannot even afford to buy a school bag which is a basic requirement for a school going, child. Children are getting bags, books, and stationery which is very helpful for our students.
