Project Report | Sep 17, 2013
September 2013 Update

By Tess Molloy | HATW Project Co-ordinator

The New Life Centre school in Sarberia has been awarded a bursary to build a day boarding centre for girls. Alindra Naskar the Principal of the school is keen for girls to stay on beyond the primary age. When the children begin at the school between the ages of 3 – 4, the classes are more or less 50% boys and 50% girls, but as you go up the school the number of girls decreases. In many cases as soon as the girls hit puberty, their parents keep them at home. They are afraid for their daughters to be out unchaperoned during the day.

In an attempt to overcome this, Alindra decided that a day boarding facility for girls would allow them to remain within the school grounds, until their parents can collect them after work.

In the photo we see some of the girls in the school in an after school sports session. These are a minority, whereas the boys who return for sports are many.

Wouldn’t you like to provide a better future for these girls by sponsoring one of them?
