Summary

An inspirational man, Alindra Naskar, in his retirement started a school and vocational training centre in his home village. Now running for 18 years, the school has grown and achieved secondary status in 2016. 300+ children are enrolled and exam results continue to improve. Past students are now attending University courses and Vocational courses, such as Nursing. They are the first in their families to do so. In the VTC over 230 young women have achieved the tailoring certificate since 2007.

Challenge

Until now there has been very little good quality, affordable education available in the densely populated towns and rural villages near the Bay of Bengal. As this is also a multi-cultural area of much poverty, the children have great needs to be met. Many young women too, often still teenagers themselves, are very disadvantaged with no income and without training, and need help to support themselves and their families.

Solution

Our partners at the New Life Centre address these needs by providing a very high standard of primary education at low cost, secondary schooling now also, along with developing vocational training programmes in a number of disciplines for local young people.

Long-Term Impact

Alindra Naskar has devoted his life to the service of others, both children and adults - first and foremost the women. His favourite saying is: "If you educate a woman, you educate a family".
