Cry of India
AG Care is engaged in various social endeavors including a child sponsorship program (The Cry of India), a daily feeding program, homes for the orphaned, and a biosand clean water initiative, among others, to serve the needs of the poorest of the poor in Kolkata and other parts of West Bengal and Eastern India.
India is a country known for her rich history and wealth of cultural diversity, beauty and spirit. Sadly, India is also home to some of the poorest people in the world. AG Care is committed to recognising and responding to the suffering of these people in the city of Kolkata and other needy regions of North and East India.
“India is the youngest nation in the world with more than 50% of India below the age of 18” Despite major efforts in India, the number of children who are not in school remains high. Gender disparities in education persist, far more girls than boys failing to complete primary school. The education system of India faces a shortage of resources, schools, classrooms and teachers.
Our child care service (The Cry of India) facilitates sponsorship for over 5,000 needy children in 57 schools across East India. These children receive quality education in our schools, a nutritious mid-day meal, and have access to basic health care, giving them an opportunity to rise to their full potential and to pursue a bright future.
In an effort to meet these challenges, AG Care provides education to over 10,000 girls and boys in three different language mediums: English, Hindi, and Bengali. Our education network includes 4 English schools, 10 vernacular schools, 1 vocational school, and 1 junior teacher training college. Our schools are spread across the length and breadth of West Bengal and are located at Kolkata, Haldia, Purulia, Ashokenagar, Bongaon, Guma, Maslandapur, Dum Dum, Keorapukur, Kestopur, Taherpur, and Thakurnagar.
Rs. 900 per month or Rs. 10000 per year can support a Child’s Education.
