From the verge of becoming a child laborer, Bilash now looks forward to an educated future

Bilash Naiya lost his father when he was a little child. His mother, Pratima works as domestic help to make ends meet.

She had to travel all the way to Kolkatta for work. This left Bilash alone at home for long periods of the day with no one to take care of him. She worked really hard to take care of the house, but their income was still not enough to send him to school. With no hope left, she agreed to send Bilash to work as a child laborer.

It was then that she came to know of the Sabuj Sangha residential school.

She approached the school and expressed her distressing situation. She requested for help so that Bilash could get an education.

Bilash was admitted to the Model School and also to the residential home. This saved him from his life of poverty and rescued him from being sucked into child labor.

Bilash soon started loving his school. He enjoyed learning, and his teachers recognized that he has great potential.

He is now in high school and is good at academics. He also writes poetry and paints well. Bilash also takes part in all the cultural programs of the school.

His mother is pleased to see her son has an opportunity to grow with support and guidance.
