We are passing through a time that has challenged entire globe with the most deadly virus- i.e. Covid-19 ever heard or experienced before in history of mankind. This not only shook the humanity but also forced us to rethink on the activities mankind are involved with. This has impelled the normalcy of life to an uncertainty that we all are waiting to be restored.

Many of the Families of Nayantara Girls who, sustain majorly on meager earnings of Daily Wage or from very small retail business units had been impacted severely with a huge financial loss with the prolonged closure of transportations, business transactions etc. now taking times to be restored yet.

Yet with the demand of life we all are restoring towards the normal activities gradually that we subsist for.

In such context we endeavoured restoring our activities under ‘Nayantara’ programme.

Thus Studies in the non-formal education support centres and some other allied extracurricular activities including Dance, Extempore etc. are started, but with restrictions as directed in the guidelines issued by governments for Covid-19 pandemic situations.

The family consists of 4 (four) members stays – Nayanika* herself parents and one elder sister- in a Pucca brick built house with own sanitary toilet.

Since the very beginning Nayanika* has been a good student. But she needs to be bettered.

Possessing a good health with athletic stature Nayanika after completing Graduation aspires opt to be a Police by profession.

  2. Hantapara Tea Garden 
  3. Garganda Tea Garden 
  4. Birpara Tea Garden 
  5. Dimdima Tea Garden and
  6. Tulsipara Tea Garden 

We continue to organize multiple medical camps at each of the locations so that all patients can be taken into complete health care observation and required follow ups. The commonly seen health issues in these areas are Cold, Fever, Gynaecological Problems, Hypertension, Anaemia etc. From the remotest corners of these areas ailing people thus avail these services to their close proximity.
