Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

Amlasole is a remote village in Binpur-II Block, West Midnapore District of the State of West Bengal, which is inhabited primarily by Munda and Sabar communities (scheduled tribe), who are not only very poor but also deprived of different government services they are entitled to.
A-non-formal school is in place since 2004; teachers have been appointed, a system of ‘training the trainers’ has been put in place, four books have been written specially for these children, incorporating their own idioms and environment. A fifth book is in the pipeline.

Also, moderate mid-day meal has been arranged and some visits by doctors and immunization/treatment have been initiated.

-Our objective is to restore the dignity and individuality of the poor and marginalized people through a process of formal and non-formal education, training and empowerment with special emphasis on distressed children. Naturally, the main objective of the organization is to cause all-round development to some poverty-stricken people belonging to the above-mentioned communities of our society.
