Going to create an educational ambience for school
By BIBHUTI RANJAN MISHRA | Project leader
I apologise for any trouble that my late report submission caused due to unanticipated events. However, it is alarming since we are currently out of fuel and have been running the project without donations for a considerable amount of time. We are putting a lot of effort into creating our own resources, and we hope to start a new academic semester in January this year. We will tabulate the evaluation report and upload the whole report with images over the course of a few more days. Again, I sincerely hope that the donor will allow me a few days to upload the whole report and the assessment form. Please help us to ensure that the impoverished population of Sundarbans, a distressed area, and their children receive top-notch education at the same time.
Education programme is running and needed support.

"Amara Sabai" operates a formal school for children from impoverished populations in the Sundarbans area of West Bengal's south 24-Parganas district. The Sundarbans, the world's biggest delta, are noted for their mangrove forests, vegetation, and animals. The regal Bengal tiger is also a symbol of the region. However, it is not widely known that this is one of most neglected, underdeveloped, and remote areas of the world. The area's socioeconomic status is much below that of the rest of the country. Poor communication systems, the worst medical facilities, the worst employment condition, and so on are the realities of the day.
Catastrophic cyclones, like boiling poison on a cow, cause nothing but suffering for the inhabitants. As a result, children's education is the most neglected sector in the area. School dropouts and child labour are the most typical occurrences in the area because there is no standard school for excellent education to establish a student base.
We built and run a school, "Shib Sankar Sisu Niketan," to provide quality education with modern amenities and an educationally pleasant environment in order to bridge the gap between need and supply.
COVID-19, as well as AMPHAN and YASS-like massive cyclones, wreaked havoc on us. However, because of our tireless efforts and the generosity of donors and well-wishers, we have come a long way but still have a long way to go. Normalcy has been restored, however. The student body has nearly doubled to about 200, up from 130 during the COVID time.
A summary of the actions carried out during the reporting period
180 pupils are direct beneficiaries.
180 families are indirect benefits.
Activities Included: A half yearly examination was held during this time period. The Smart Class facilities are available to all students. Celebrations of national holidays such as August 15th, Independence Day, and September 5th, Teachers Day, were held to educate children about the history and significance of the celebrations.
By this time, we had begun an income-generating pottery project for the mothers in order for them to supplement their income and properly care for their child's education. The three-month training period has ended.
We need help and assistance to complete our mission because we are short on funds. I sincerely request that you support us.
'Sib Sankar Sisu Niketan,' which works for excellent education for children from impoverished backgrounds, has acquired credibility for its pleasant educational environment, which includes a smart class, a computer learning centre, a playground, flowing water, a good class room, a fresh room, and so on. We had to fight for our lives after being struck by super cyclones such as AMPHAN and YASS.
Despite significant financial limits, we had to struggle together for two years to repair damaged infrastructure and to prevent students from dropping out for a variety of reasons. It was a difficult commitment, but we overcame it by borrowing money from well-wishers and collecting local donations.
Despite the fact that we work in a rural region with minimal resources, we did not get a single donation from GlobalGiving in the previous year. Concerns about a lack of experienced workforce, a communication backlog, and unfavourable weather conditions hampered our ability to complete tasks successfully.
Despite the fact that student strength did not achieve the planned level due to poor communication facilities and a variety of other factors, they reached 170, which is significantly higher than the previous year.
Regular lessons are being held, and terminal evaluations are currently underway. In between school sports, calibrations, cultural events, and other activities are planned.
We humbly request that kind-hearted donors support us in our efforts to further a noble cause.
