Educo has fully funded the building of phase 1 of this primary school. It is located in the tea gardens in West Bengal, near the boarder of Bhutan and Sikkim. Only 15% of children in the area are enrolled in the Indian educational system. Our schools will improve these statistics in the coming years.
This school opened its doors in March 2018. The uptake in admissions has been extremely positive with 212 students enrolled to date.
In 2019, Educo plans to build phase 2 of this project, which will add an additional ﬂoor to the existing building. Educo has partnered with the The Chakra Charitable Society run the school.
