The Outlook magazine has run a heart-warming piece on the evening school run by 207 residents of the Lady Brabourne College Hostel in Calcutta. Keeping up a 36 year old tradition, these girls welcome close to 40 young children every evening from poor homes nearby. Between 5 and 6.30 PM they use innovative methods to teach and help the children with their class work. The College stands behind in silent support but it’s the hostelers’ show and funds too are pooled by them.
After fun-filled lessons, children get fruits and snacks before they head home. Hostelers also raise money for books and stationary for needy children. Of course they’d welcome your contributions: Phone- 033-22448120
