This two-part project continues our support of MGBK’s work with the Kheria Sabar tribal people and other villagers of Purulia district. The first part is an effort to assist 28 tribal teenage girls, the first in their families to attend much school, in completing their secondary education. MGBK is providing them with educational materials (books, notebooks, etc.) and additional tutoring at a coaching center run by four part-time teachers in a community center. All of the girls have passed the class examinations so far. The second part, now completed, is the construction of a new tube well and repair of a defunct one, to provide the villagers with a reliable source of water. The new well is now functioning successfully.
