When Sarji had joined our school and hostel few months back, he couldn’t speak and understand Hindi, English and even Bengali. All he knew was his local tribal language Kokborok. Initial weeks we had to learn his language to some basic level to help him learn. Now we see him progressing in studies with confidence.
We kick started our long cherished and deeply awaited dream – our centralised school and hostels at IIT Kharagpur for poor tribal children. We have 17 students from tribal belts Purulia(West Bengal), Pakur (Jharkhand) and Kundanala (Assam) spanning classes 5th to 8th.
This is the commencement of Phase 1 – next 5 years we want to take our tribal hostels to 1000 students ranging from 5th to graduation.
Our aspiration, prayer and commitment to nurture and grow this humble seed into an international revolution for humanity.
