Non-formal Study Centres
While a non-formal study centre had been operating at the Tollygunge centre until recently, the Sarsuna Centre has begun its own study centre classes, Yogasana, drawing and music classes from 2012, for a hundred (100) marginalized children of the locality, in a building erected for the purpose. Sri Sachindranath Mandal as convener of the sub-committee formed under the Chairperson Smt. Anjana Basu, Vice President, Agami Nirman, 2003, has been given the responsibility of supervising the centre and its activities in entirety. More than five paid teachers along with another eleven volunteer teachers work at the centre.
At the Sarsuna centre the ground floor of the building also serves as a medical unit after classes are over. Two doctors have offered their services for examining and prescribing medicine to poor local families. Health camps are also being considered as future programmes in keeping with local demands.
We are happy with the progress that has been achieved at the Sarsuna centre.
