This programme is giving underprivileged children from the Sunderbans a chance at a quality education

Literacy levels among the underprivileged are extremely low in the Sunderbans. A limited family income means that children are often pressured into staying away from school and helping their family earn a living. The NGO Mukti aims to help these children through a sponsorship programme for meritorious students.
