Sabuj Sangha runs coaching centres as part of the Rehabilitation of Deprived Children through Education Programme. The project aims to improve and enhance the life of marginalized and vulnerable people in the operational area, to uplift deprived children by ensuring a quality life through education, empowerment, information and convergence of services provided by local government. These interventions allow first generation learners and children who have dropped out of school to access and receive quality education. Through this project, deprived children of the operational-area not only understand the importance of education, but also enjoy the learning experience.

• The centres are called Sabuj Kunris.
• The teachers also receive inputs to facilitate joyful learning to the students.
• The children are allowed to express themselves through social and cultural platforms.
• The parents are also part of the local community groups and help minotor the progress of the children. The Statistics

Selima wants to become a teacher
Selima resides in the Raynagar area of Dakshin Barasat along with her parents and two sisters. The financial condition of her family is poor, as her father is a vegetable seller and had to go to Sealdah for collecting vegetables daily to run their family; He struggled to provide the necessary food and clothes required for the family. Her mother is a home maker. Their monthly income is very low (Rs. 3,500/- per month). Despite the fact that Selima was 8 years old, she was not admitted to any local school due to the poor financial condition at home. They were nowhere in a position to support the education of their three daughters.
Selima was first identified during a survey in the Dakshin Barasat area. Her clothes were dirty and she was wandering in the community.

Presently she is studying in Class VIII in the same school and is also receiving back up education support from the Dakshin Barasat Sabuj Kunri coaching centre. She is also taught some extracurricular activities like embroidery work etc. Her writing and reading skills have also improved.
Selima is attending the school and coaching centre regularly. She has become a very good student and is performing well in her studies. She has secured 60% in the annual exams of Class – VII. She has become active in the class and is always taking suggestions from her teachers for her betterment. Presently she is an active Child Core Group member of the Dakshin Barasat Sabuj Kunri coaching centre (CCG is a group formed by a no. of 8-10 students studying in the classes from V to VIII at the Sabuj Kunri centres.
