Joyjeet das Memorial School
At present, we directly collaborate with Joyjeet Das Memorial School, a small “social school” / association in Calcutta, India. Created and run by Simanti Das, a.k.a. “Mimi”; the school educates children between 2 and 6 years of age in order to prepare them for elementary education, while at the same time, it takes them off the streets, thus avoiding falling into networks of child exploitation (begging, prostitution) or drugs.
Also known as “Mimi”, this wonderful woman has been in charge of the execution of the project for more than 15 years since she created the school herself. After losing her son, Joyjeet. With her team, we go through the rural areas and "slums" of Calcutta, where kids belonging to low castes are offered an opportunity to go to school. The opportunity to be kids.
