Katakhali Swapnopuron Welfare Society
Save Lives in Sunderbans
Katakhali Swapnopuron Welfare Society (KSWS) started its journey during 2012 in the islands of Sunderbans to serve the underprivileged children through Education and Child Protection. The organization has established the only English medium school in the islands of Sunderbans following CBSE Curriculum along with multi sectoral value addition inputs. More than 1000 children have received educational inputs and continuing their studies till date. The school was operational for up to Class IV till 2018-2019 academic sessions. In the 2019-20 academic sessions the organization has acquired a land for setting up a permanent structure for the school with addition of classes from V to VIII. The organization intends to scale up the school up to Class – XII level in next 5 years time.
The core areas of intervention for KSWS involve – Child Rights, Education, prevention from Trafficking & Child Marriage, sensitization on Menstrual Hygiene along with some intervention for the adults on Literacy and Women Empowerment. The organization strives to move ahead with the thematic areas of Education, Child Protection and Adolescent issues in spirit with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), National Plan of Action for Children (NPAC) and West Bengal State Plan of Action for Children (SPAC).
Mission Creating a value based society for women, children, and adolescents towards ensuring their entitlements through Rights Based Approach by means of enhancing community participation and system strengthening.
Vision Empowering communities and promoting gender equality aligned with Sustainable Development
Goal The organisation looks at ensuring Rights and Entitlements for all children in spirit of the UNCRC and Sustainable Development Goals. While working in the remotest islands of Sunderbans, the organisation has revealed the reality of life situations of the children living in those islands. It has been observed the substantial numbers of children are vulnerable to all forms of abuse and exploitations. They are being deprived of their basic Rights by all means and are used for labour including being trafficked to other locations. Families of these children are left with no options when the traffickers lure them with several offers. The organisation has been able to collaborate with state and district administration for effective implementation of various Govt. schemes and programs including capacity building and monitoring support

I am truly amazed at the work that this organization is doing for the children in the Sundarbans! May God bless you all and give you the energy and blessing required in order to carry on this important work. I am certainly going to support this cause financially and ensure that at least there is no lack of funds for this important initiative to be successful!

Katakhali Swapnopuran Welfare Society has ventured into life-changing work in the remote islands of Sunderbans- areas that are so far flung that most people would stay away. Within a very short span, they have made a huge impact and have drawn a blueprint for the future. Their efforts were evident during cyclone Amphan when, despite all odds, the team brought timely help to those stranded and in need of urgent relief. They have surely fulfilled many dreams and created hope for those who had been neglected for generations. Kudos to the team and best wishes for the future.

Swapnopuron is doing some amazing work with the kids in South 24 parganas. The trust that they have earned from the parents of the children studying in their school is heart warming. I wish them more luck for the hard work that they are putting in. Thank you.

It was really a blissful experience for me and my team to visit Swapnopuron Shishu Shiksha Niketan in Hingalgunj, Sundarbans. The devotion and commitment of the school management and teachers was really commendable. On the contrary, students were full of keenness and willingness to learn and grow. The hardship of life in Sundarbans is not unknown to us but on other side of the table, what is admirable and laudable was the the pure relationship of teacher and student who despite all the hardship and lack of modern facilities of education were striving to expand their knowledge base and grow. Visiting Sundarbans and interacting with those little children was probably one of the best real life experiences for me. Wishing for the betterment and growth of those children ♥️ Hope to visit them soon. Thank You Satarupa ma'am for giving us this opportunity.😊
