Dear Donors, 

We have some good news to give you to herald 2013!!

Devipur Karunamayee Girl’s High School is one of the main girls’ schools in the Sundarbans, situated in a remote village with no electricity. It is a government sponsored school with more than 800 students. On 19 November 2012, the girls' hostel, where 40 girls live and study, was  lit up with 18 solar lights!   The solar lights are CFL ones of 17 watts each with 3 high powered batteries and 3 panels. The students who live in the hostel are the between 10 to 15 years of age. This lights will not only help them to study but also help in their routine activities.

Bravo to you, our donors, for lighting up the lives of these young girls!! The students in the Sundarbans look forward to your continuing support.

Have a wonderful New Year!

With warm regards,

Diti Mookherjee
