The learning culture at Anandanagar is growing and the sublime environment of Anandanagar adds to the dynamism of this growing educational township.

As in previous years, students at the Boys and Girls High Schools at Anandanagar, Chakulia(Jharkhand), Teliamura (Agartala,Tripura) and Silchar (Assam) have demonstrated good results relative to the rest of the schools in the respective states.

Uma Nivas

Women’s College and Primary School

Khatanga Village, Kotshila, Dist. Purulia, WB, India

Uma Nivas is a rural community development project run by women with its primary focus on the welfare of women and children. It spans several villages in area of Kotshila, Purulia District, West Bengal, India.

Uma Nivas runs four primary schools, a Children’s Home for orphans, a Girl’s High School and a clinic, all surrounded by gardens, orchards and farms.

Presently a Women’s College is under construction that will also have a model Kindergarten and Primary School. The aim is to provide a learning environment for students to observe, design and apply creative and innovating teaching skills. There are already 60 girls and 150 pupils enrolled, now studying in temporary accommodations, waiting for the completion of this project.

We have raised funds from friends and supporters for the construction and are presently working on the ceiling of the ground floor. To complete the 600sqm two-storey facility we still need 75,000 Euros.
We welcome your kind support. Even small contributions are of great value for us. You may volunteer or visit us. You can follow us on Facebook page Uma Nivas.
