Vivekananda Ashram - Hooghly, West Bengal


Asha Zurich has funded the construction of a school building at Vivekananda Ashram, which is located in Adisaptagram village, Hooghly district, about 50 km. from Calcutta. The Ashram runs classes during the day for about 150 children from the surrounding areas. In these classes, the students are assisted in their studies by voluntary teachers. The area where the project operates is rural and many of the students are first generation learners. If it were not for the Ashram, the boarding students would possibly not have come into the sphere of education at all, and among the day students, many would have found the general school curriculum so daunting that they would have dropped out of school.


Project Status: Construction completed on 14th August, 2004.
Total amount transferred: Rs. 5,26,729.00 (CHF 14,800.00)
Project contact: Saikumar Chalasani - zurich(AT)ashanet(DOT).org
Detailed information on the project is available at Asha for Education's Project Database.
