Fantastic initiative of Swapnasathi Foundation to bring children back to school.


(Spin Digit Editorial):- Baduria, West bengal May 19, 2022 ( – Two years of the Covid-19 epidemic, when schools in West Bengal were closed for most of the day, have had a profound effect on the learning ability of school-going children. The ‘Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) West Bengal 2021’ has revealed that less than 30% of the students studying in the third grade can read from the second standard. The situation was relatively good in the upper class but it is still a matter of concern because less than 50% of the students in the fifth grade can read the text from the second grade and about 70% of the students studying in the eighth grade can read the text in the second grade. This is the latest estimate of the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic on school children. Schools are currently on summer vacation. As a result, the physical and mental development of children is being hampered again.

With this in mind, Swapanasathi Foundation has taken an innovative initiative that is the first of its kind in West Bengal and India. The Swapanasathi Foundation has organized a summer workshop from May 12 to 14 at Paschim Joynagar JC High School, West Bengal. In this 3-day camp, there was training in singing, dancing, drama, sports, drawing as well as making different types of beverages.  This is the effort of the Swapanasathi Foundation to make school dropouts school-oriented. A group of young people is carrying out big-budget activities not with arrogance but with confidence. On the first day of S Swapanasathi’s summer camp, although the weather was not so kind,  the attendance rate of the children was eye-catching. They are very happy to participate in various workshops. The camp begins with yoga and ends with a mid-day lunch service.
