On 15 July 2011, 150 solar lamps were handed over to poor meritorious students of seven Government schools and one school run by Baikunthapur Tarun Sanga (BTS) at a ceremony on Maipith Island in Sundarbans. Present were students and teachers of the schools, representatives of ASED, ONergy, BTS and the local government. Parents of some of the students also attended the ceremony. The students, who were given the solar lamps, were chosen by the school authorities on the basis of academic merit and economic need. The staff of BTS visited the homes of these students for verification. Seven sets of twin LED solar tube lights were donated to seven schools where there are residential students or special coaching so that students can study properly after dark.

The joy on the students and teachers faces was so wonderful to see! The boys and girls receiving the solar lamps said they would be able to study better with the lamps and hoped that in future other fellow students could also receive these lamps.
We thank you, our donors, for your generous support and look forward to a continued relationship.
We are very pleased to let you know that we will be handing over solar lamps to 150 poor meritorious students on 15 July 2011. We will also be installing solar LED twin light systems in seven Government High Schools where over 400 students will benefit by getting the opportunity to study by good quality lighting after dark.
For the handing over ceremony we will be leaving Kolkata for Baikunthapur Tarun Sangha on Maipith Island on the afternoon of 14 July and return to Kolkata by the evening of 15 July 2011.
If you wish to come along and personally hand over the lamps please contact Diti Mookherjee at +919831153372 or email at email@example.com.
We will share a project report with photos with you after we return.
With warm regards
Diti and the ASED team
With the generous support of our donors we will be able to give 150 individual solar lamps and 12 solar lights for common reading areas in schools in the Sundarbans in the first phase. This will benefit more than 450 students.
We are in the process of obtaining the names of poor meritorious students. The lists are being drawn up by the Headmaster and teachers of local government schools on Maipith Island in the Sundarbans. We are also in the process of procuring the solar lamps and lights from ONergy. We will be handing over these to the students in July 2011. We will let you know the exact date. If you are in Kolkata at that time we would be grateful if you could come along and hand over the lamps to the students. It will make such a difference to their lives!
We once again thank you for believing in this cause.
