“GolpoGhor” Inauguration

As per a collaborative process between Ek Tara and the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC), Ek Tara has been entrusted with developing the Topsia KMCP School (on South Topsia Road) as a model school. This includes providing infrastructural, technological as well as academic support to the school, eventually helping it convert into an English medium school equipped with smart classrooms. Ek Tara’s library team is helping set up libraries in the 5 KMCP schools where the organisation is working. Sponsored by HT Parekh Foundation and assisted by the Bhabook team, these libraries have been named as ‘GolpoGhor’. The objective is to give first-generation school-goers access to ‘contemporary contextual children’s literature’ and help develop an interest in books. Ek Tara’s very first ‘GolpoGhor’ inuagarated by Sandipan Saha (MMIC, Department of Education), Namrata Sureka (Founder & Managing Trustee, Ek Tara) and Rahul Mukhopadhyay (Chief mentor of the Bhabook team). The chief guests opened a small set of children’s books to celebrate the occasion.
