Dear Donor,

We are excited to let you know that the hostel of the Debipur Karunamoyee Balika Vidyapith , the only girls' school in Maipith area in the Sundarbans, will be provided with at least 15 solar lights from three 74 watt solar panels. The girls' of the hostel come from underprivileged tribal and scheduled caste families. There are only 4 working solar lights for 40 girls (of which we had given 2 lights) and it is very difficult for them to study in the evening with kerosene lamps. The teachers of the school repeatedly requested ASED to help to light the hostel. After personally visiting the hostel with the ASED team, we have taken the decision to provide the lights. These will be installed on November 17, 2012.

We will also be providing individual lamps to poor, meritorious students in the new year.

During the Festival of Lights (Diwali), we encourage you, your family and friends, to donate a solar lamp to a deserving child in the Sundarbans!

Many thanks for your continued support,

With warm regards,

Diti
