Ataul’s simple village life took a drastic change when he was forced to leave his village in Sundarban due to the Cyclone ‘Ayela’ in 2009. His family, like many others ones, migrated to Kolkata in search for economic stability. At first the families started to live and beg on the pavements opposite Nicco Park; later a slum was built for them in the area.


Despite the difficult circumstances Ataul had a keen interest in studies but, Ataul’s parents could not put him through mainstream school due to their financial constraints. With our Education project Abhilasha Ataul’s, parents now believes that their aspirations to educate their kid can turn into reality.

When Ataul first came to our Abhilasha School his focus was diverted and he did not interact much with anyone in the class but slowly with some extra guidance from the teachers he made remarkable improvements. Ataul was enrolled in main stream Goyalbati School near chingri ghata in class 3. Now Ataul is in class 8 and has become the class monitor. His efforts have been praised by his teachers as well as his parents. He has become an example in his slum. To contribute to his family economically Ataul works in a factory every day after school. But despite all the setbacks he has manage to continue his studies smoothly at the end of the day.

Ataul is still among the regular students in our Abhilasha school as being the first generation school goer in his family he needs proper guidance in the studies and he even takes initiatives to teach and guide other kids in the school.

Being the eldest daughter Sapna thus takes the whole responsibility of raising them with undivided love and care for them.

But slowly with some extra effort from the teachers she has shown remarkable improvement.
