The Problem:

Sunderbans is overall a poorly developed region where access to education for kids is difficult. Govt. run schools are sparse and most kids in early years waste the whole day playing.

The Opportunity:

Kids can be better prepared for mainstream school if they are given pre-school education. In the project area BTS also runs a mainstream school.

The Solution:

Provide a joyful learning experience to kids within the age group of 3-6 years. After going through the pre-school the kids are admitted into the main-stream school.

Vibha Involvement:

Vibha funds operational expenses of the pre-school centers. It provides for both recurring and non-recurring expenses. In addition it also provides training to the teachers so that they can be more efficient in imparting education.
