Leave a Legacy

Education is the only way out for 1000 + students of Sundarbans. Coming from families of fishermen and tobacco binders, they wish to have a future different from their forefathers. Your Scholarship will help talented students to continue their education. It is a gift that will help them have a better future for themselves and their families. The best part is that your Scholarship will keep the talented and needy students year after year.

Our school, Swapnapuron Siksha Niketan, has been bringing the best educational tools and training to the remote villages of Sundarbans for the last nine years. Our founder, Satarupa Majumder, a teacher herself, was moved by the kids’ plight in a trip to Sundarbans. She left her job to build the school and fuel these kids’ dreams, cut off from the mainstream. With dedicated staff and passion, the school has directly impacted the lives of over 1000 kids. Your Scholarship will help these talented kids to realise their dreams.

Be a part of the change!

NAME A SCHOLARSHIP

The endowment scholarship will provide an award every year to selected students based on their academics and economic background criteria. The Scholarships will be perpetual and can be named after your beloved ones. Scholarship fund denominations are given below based on the support you wish to provide for the students.

  • 2 Lakh Rupees

  • 3 Lakh Rupees
  • 5 Lakh Rupees

The fund will be endowed and hence will exist for perpetuity. The funds will be under the stewardship of the board, and the interest will  support:

  1. The Scholarship.
  2. Administrative cost of maintaining the Scholarship.
  3. Adjustment against inflation.

Suppose you donate 3 lakh Rupees, on investment the expected return of interest per annum is 5%, i.e. Rs.15000
80% of the amount (i.e. Rs.12000) will go as Scholarship,
10% of the amount (i.e. Rs.1500) as admin cost and
10% of the amount (i.e. Rs.1500) will add up to principle as an adjustment against inflation.
This will make sure the Scholarship exists for perpetuity. And this will make you proud for years to come.

The average yearly cost of education, uniform and books for a child at Swapnapuron is Rs. 12000/-

NAME A CLASSROOM

The school began from humble origins to finally get a building of its own. Classrooms are the main area for the kids’ education. The classrooms will help the kids to shape not only their future but also their community. Dedicate the name of your loved one to a classroom or an education centre and be a part of social transformation for generations.

The donation amount shall include the classroom’s construction cost, and a minor part of the donation will be invested, and the board will use the annual return from it for the yearly maintenance of your classroom. Your Gifted Classroom will teach generations of kids.
