Objective of the Celebration:

Sarani NGO supports a number of underprivileged to cope up well with their academics and other extra-curricular activities. It provides aid to about 100 students. The students are taught subjects of Geography, Physics, Arts and other basic sciences with keen support of two faculties. We have visited the NGO for developing an interesting communication with them and to glance deep into their social as well as educational lives. We heard from students of different divisions, their subjects of interests, their weaknesses or strength in different fields, the lack of technology and communication being a prime reason of them lagging behind. A number of recommendations and proposals were put forward by our team which included improved means of communication, help and support regarding subjects like English Language and Mathematics from the students of our institution. The students were provided with dry foods and educational aids like drawing books, colour pencils, geometry boxes and support books for their board examinations.

Overall layout of the Event:

On this day we visited a vermicompost pit where fine fertilizers were manufactured after going through a number of steps. It was the hard work of the residents of that area. They use a fine mixture of vegetable wastes, bamboo shoot, cow dung extracts, hay and a special variety of German
earthworms which aid the process through anaerobic respiration. After completion they are made to stay for a week which results to fine fertilizers which are also traded to urban nurseries.
It has also been planned further that such processes will be engaged inside our institution for fertilizer production of fine texture such that wastes can be recycled and used effectively. We also visited a number of kitchen gardens or vegetable gardens also known as a potager where they employ traditional methods to grow fresh fruits and vegetables for their daily needs and also to be traded to cities which would earn them a living. They grow beetroots, cabbages, brinjals, potatoes and other traditional Indian vegetables. We were presented with fresh vegetables from them as a token of love.

Women Tailoring at Sarani NGO:

120 women are taught the art of stitching and designing various works. These women design school uniforms and also Indian traditional dresses for women. . Their working hours range from 2- 5 PM for a day. Learning this art has earned them a living. These women are also included in health and hygiene awareness programs to follow themselves and also spread the culture. We recorded them working and also talked to two of their advisors Mrs. Rakhi Mondal and Mrs. Mousumi Gyan.
