Hostels for tribal children

Asansol Burdwan Seva Kendra as its prime concern mainstreaming its target group ‘tribal’ in all the sectors of socio-economic and politics through education.

ABSK has realized that educating its target groups, tribal is not an easy task but providing a conducive situation through hostels is the only way to achieve our goal and taken the step of installing hostels for tribal children in the districts of Burdwan, Bankura and Birbhum since its inception.

There are 22 hostels established in different mission stations for the tribal children who hail from the most economically backward areas where education infrastructure is not available to continue their studies.

Totally 2239 children, together both boys and girls are being benefited by this programme. As we are not able to accommodate all the deprived children in our hostels, we have started coaching centers in the villages.

Village Level animators are appointed in 119 coaching centers to take tuition classes for the children in the evening that they may able to cope up with their school curriculum.

We conduct Summer Camps on School subjects for our children to acquire a hand in hand experience with laboratory equipment, teaching aids and experience the updated technologies and techniques to acquire knowledge and wisdom.

The village centers as well as the hostelsorganize different activities throughout the year such as sports, drawing, cultural activities, study tour etc to sustain their interest in further study.

In various multifaceted activity of the society, various donors extend their helping hand to implement micro project such as coaching centers, tube wells, housing, self-employment etc.

Many tribal childrenare financially supported by donor agencies through different sponsorships individually as well as in groups.
