CARE has helped to provide an English medium school to create better opportunities for all children. The main aim was to alleviate gender inequality, whereby orphan girls facing poverty were treated as inferiors rather then equals.

Local partners: Pranab Kanya Sangar

Prior to CARE’s Involvement: Limited educational facilities with no infrastructure

CARE’s Impact: CARE has funded the building of one floor of the school so far with the view to assist further in the future, as well as other centres run by Pranab Kanya Sangar.

“I was touched by a visit in the Kolkata slum, having seen many in Mumbai as i grew up, where the school we eventually helped build; once again targets girls from the poorest of the poor. Their enthusiasm to survive against all odds and be grateful for what they recieve naturally touches the heart whilst comparing the creature comfort an average teenager gets in this country. The building are clean and inviting and its hard the teachers and helpers which shines through during the short visits.”  Bharat Parmer
