Help This Taxi Driver In His Quest To Eradicate Illiteracy

Seven-year-old Gazi Jalaluddin studied at the local school of his village. A studious kid, he was excited to tell his father that he had stood first in class 1. But his father had news of his own — he was unable to gather enough money to buy him books for class 2 so Gazi would have to stop going to school.

Gazi’s father was unwell and they came to Kolkata in search of some work, which might give them at least one meal everyday. Unfortunately no one would hire an ailing man, and Gazi ended up begging on the streets of Kolkata.


Once he was 12 or 13, Gazi started to work as a rickshaw-puller in the Entally market area of Kolkata. And in few more years, at 18, Gazi learnt to drive a taxi and became a taxi-driver in 1977.

But it was always on his mind, the many young boys back in his village still trying to make ends meet. He started saving money driving a taxi so that no child would have to go through the same fate as he did.


Today, he runs two schools teaching 400 children in the Sunderbans, using money from his own pocket. With an expenditure of Rs 2 lakhs per month, he needs your support to continue his life's work.

Help Gazi in his quest to eradicate illiteracy from the Sunderbans!

 Dear Supporters,

I Shri Gaji Jalaluddin would like to share my gratitude for the generous support extended.

I would like to inform you sadly that Sundarban Orphanage which was established and was running with all kinds of help and support in the COVID 19 pandemic has again fallen into the prey of Amphan cyclone on 20.05.20. The wall covering our building has been demolished (pictures attached). In the past, all my beloved friends and near and dear ones came to my rescue during any crisis.

The good amount of Rs.40 lakhs from participating in KBC has been spent on purchasing land for Higher Secondary school at Narendrapur. But still, I have Rs 10 lakhs loan in this regard for further expenses.

I hope all our supporters and well-wishers would stand by us to finish my dream project.  

With regards,
Jalaluddin
