Project Description

BWC's goal is to nurture and develop the potential in each child so as to enable them to meet the challenges of life. In addition to education, BWC also emphasizes the importance of health, nutrition, and cleanliness.
Two schools offer kindergarten education and the third school from first to seventh grade. After grade 7, the children are placed in outside schools and then in colleges and vocational training centers, and are monitored right through.

Organization Description

BWC was started in 1968 by a private citizen to distribute milk to bustee children. In 1971, she and other like minded volunteers opened a primary school for the children. Today, BWC runs three schools. Two of them have nursery and KG classes, and the third has classes 1 through 7. The schools are currently Bengali medium, but are changing over to English medium.
