Summary

Save a differently able children in disadvantaged tribal and 2009 Ailla Cyclone affected areas with access to quality education in an interactive and joyful environment. Children are enabled to join mainstream schools, having become confident, independent learners.

Challenge

Access to education in these areas is limited (a) because it is often locally unavailable, (b) because of domestic and economic pressures forcing children to work, and (c) because it has traditionally not been accorded value. Nearly half of rural children in our area are out of school, and literacy levels are around just 33%.

Solution

Institute for the Handicapped and Backward people (IHBP) runs primary schools catering to children from poor tribal, minorities’ families in 42 villages of Backward Block of North 24 Paarganas district of West Bengal. The schools operate in rooms donated by, or rented from, villagers. IHBP involves local communities in the management of its schools and trains local instructors. Our schools equip children with essential skills for coping with the challenges of contemporary life. They learn literacy and numeric skills, hygiene, and creative activities. Visits to city/zoo/library are also undertaken.
