A classroom full of Students in Calcutta

Our Story

At its peak, Joyjeet das Memorial School educated 400 underprivileged kids in the slums of Calcutta, India. On top of providing an education, the school provided regular medical checks, vocational training for parents and one warm meal a day to those who need it most.

Due to lack of resources, in 2016 it could barely afford to provide services for 100 students and risked closing. Education Everywhere was created in 2016 to change that.

Rushed in its creation, Education Everywhere was born out of this emergency and between 2016 and 2017 managed to raise over $7,000 USD, effectively keeping the school open. Download our 2017-18 Brochure here.
