Amrita-Seattle has identified schools in two (out of thousands) of the remote islands villages within the dense Sunderbaans Forest: Tipligheri and Jamespur, where daily after-school tutorials and a meal programs are run by Amrita-Seattle for the last three years.
Most students in these schools are either orphans or have only single parent due to frequent tigerattacks. Poverty runs rampant in these villages for lack of farmland,resources, and earning members. Needless to say that education isthe key weapon forthese childrenin order to break out from their daily struggle.
With your help, Amrita-Seattle aims to set-up a library in each of these two school campuses to enhance the children’s reading level and inspire them to read and love books.
