Lodhma is a locality in the Karra block of Khunti district in Jharkhand. It is situated at about 20 km from Ranchi. In order to search for an area where intervention was extremely needed in terms of education especially, Pratigya in 2012, discovered the village namely, Chandapara of this locality. The village consists of mainly the tribal population and comes under the Naxalite belt.
Pratigya adopted this village educationally and is sponsoring almost 80 children from the village every year for their education. In 2016-17, Pratigya along with the hard efforts of the people of Chandapara set up a resource room namely “URGE”, where people of any age group can get benefited by it. This has put a great impression for the other villages nearby.
Since last 4-5 years, what Pratigya has done there, the people realized it very closely and that is the reason they were insisting the organisation to set up an English medium school for the children so that the children would not struggle in their future career endeavors. So, after many failure in getting a land within an affordable price, the people of Chandapara have decided to provide a piece of land for the very purpose.
Pratigya, in its new chapter, is going to start a budget English medium school which will be focused on the quality school education for the underprivileged children at a very affordable expense. Hence, we request you to support this initiative by any means possible from your side.
Donors can donate:
1. A lump-sum amount for the initiative                     3. Desks/Benches                               5. Projector(s)                                               7. Books / Notebooks                      9. Play Materials
2. Computer(s)                                                                 4. Board(s)                                           6. Book Shelves / Cup Boards                    8. Water Filter(s)                             10. Classroom(s)

Apart from donation, we would also welcome funds in short term investments/loans from our well wishers, so as to set up this school. The investors can expect to get a respectful return for their valuable support that they would provide the organisation for setting up this school.

Not everybody can work on the ground level, but at least we can support the people who are doing it. I am sponsoring two children’s education through Pratigya and I think everybody can and should help them in one or the other way. It won’t cost you much but it means a lot.

Pratigya also gave me an opportunity to meet with my supported children and their families which most of the organisations do not provide. A day with my supported children was like the greatest gift for me, as, I had an opportunity to mingle with them without any binding from the organisation. I observed that, even my supported children were not very academically sound, but they have some other qualities which could make them appreciable if promoted in a proper way. Currently, I am placed at Kuwait but whenever it feels to know about the developments of my supported children, I get the updates from Pratigya in a very easy way.
