Mr Alindra Naskar’s visit to the UK this summer has resulted in 8 new sponsors for the school. This will have a long lasting effect on the school as a whole as the money more than pays for individual children, so everyone benefits.
A link with an engineering company, who paid for the building of separate toilets for the girls and boys of the school last year, was also strengthened as a result of the visit. Having met Mr Naskar face to face the board were moved to suggest that they could help to build a health care centre on the site of the school for the local villagers, who at the moment are at the mercy of untrained ‘medicine’ men.
The school is growing rapidly with 71 new students this term, and soon the new classrooms will be full. If Mr Naskar wants to realise his ambition of secondary level schooling, then further building will need to be done.
