* VAGUS BOI TOI HOI CHOI SCHOOL*
Vagus charitable trust in association with FEED ( A NGO run by Mr Chandrasekhar kundu; who is now wellknown as Food man ) has started a supplementary school at asansol with the aim of providing support in education for a few underprivileged children. Name of this school is ” VAGUS BOI TOI HOI CHOI SCHOOL”. The school is situated at a remote village in asansol…called bhuiyapara. The inhabitants of this village are mostly migrant population called bhumihars. Its a occupied land where these people stay. There are problems about their permanent address and identity.
There are about 35 to 40 children staying in this village. Most of them are school dropouts or has failed to continue education due to many limitations. The villagers mostly work as stone grinders…the ladies work in various road building projects. There is no electricity in that village….children are mostly malnourished….and thinking about studying would be a luxury for them. Many of these children have a disturbed childhood….deserted by their parents…suffering from psychological issues….and decided to give up studies….as they dont see any future in the endeavour.
Hoi choi school is conceptualized by Mr Chandrasekhar kundu. These are open air schools under the open sky and tree shade. Colored decorated tripals and bamboo madurs are used to make arrangements for sitting and studying. Small bipod desk…books…colored and plain pencils…crayons for drawing and all other accessories are provided by vagus. Two teachers would be appointed shortly to run the school…they would be paid by vagus. According to age and level of IQ…the students will be segregated into different classes….most likely three groups….class I and II; Class III & IV; Class V & VI. Each of these groups will twice a week afternoon class.
Our wish is not to replace the formal school. Instead…by providing supportive or special tutions…we want to promote school going among these children. We can prevent school dropouts and promote a sense of wellbeing regarding going to schools and furthering studies. Two of our doctors….belonging to vagus…would regularly monitor the progress of the children periodically…every fortnightly. A few members from kolkata will also pay visit periodically…every 3-4 months.
