Familia is making a new step to facilitate qualitative and comprehensive education for the children of nearby villages and small towns such as Haringhata, Nagarguda and Barajaguly. In short, the school will cater to the total community of children in the Amdanga and Haringhata Blocks of the North 24-Parganas. The nearest English Medium School of renown is approx. ten kilometers from Familia School. We aim at a Higher Secondary School in the nearby future.
One of the various reasons for such an endeavour is that Familia depends solely on the munificence of a few friends inland and abroad. So far there was no self generated income to support Familia’s increasing financial requirements. Moreover, the cry of the general public within 8/10 km around Familia for an English Medium school, which had been a distant dream for them, also made us think in this line. So in April 2006 the Familia School was launched.
Further, Familia’s outreach service is extended through the school in the form of Educational Support to selected children from the tribal and BPL category around Familia.
Just above 25% of the students in Familia School receive a comprehensive support for English Medium schooling. Thus the needier section of the society is given a chance along with the privileged ones.
