Work in field of literacy : Bhalopahar is a society formed for restoration of folk culture and enhancing environmental education to tribal children and is also an instrument for nurture and propagation of threatened ecological system. The founders were alarmed at the rapid depletion of vast stretches of forest in this area. Struggling against odds, this is still a humble approach in a limited area in Purulia district in the state of West Bengal, India.

No of Beneficiaries : 2500

Social Impact : Bhalopahar school functions only up to standard VII. We look forward to stop drop out in the initial classes and mainstream children who are ready to study further than Class VIII in government schools. Our budding school is an attempt to connect the children with their own culture, so that they begin to take pride in it, while learning to read and write in English and Bengali. Reciting their stories and songs are as important to us as teaching the English alphabet. Currently, we have 200 students of which 145 come from Santhal communities and the rest belong primarily to the Mahato communities of the area. Since free education does not build value in life, we charge them monthly 50/- as token money and provide books and uniforms at subsidized rate. The children are given free mid-day meal. Poor parents who cannot pay even that amount are encouraged to earn from the organization in return of labor at Bhalopahar by gardening or tending to livestock which help them earn daily sustenance

Fund Outlay : 0

The challenge of arranging funds is being met : We look for support from corporate houses and donation from members. These are the main sources from where we raise our funds.

This Award is going to impact the work in future : We look forward to have an environmental school with hostel and regular playground and other facilities where-from all-square students will graduate in future with your expert kind support. Be a volunteer or a donor, we welcome your advice and shaking hand.
