Friends of Parabaas

WHO: Right from 1997, Parabaas has been blessed with spontaneous help from our well wishers. Since 2010, ALL the contributions from "Friends of Parabaas" (সহযোগী পাঠক) are used to undertake several pro bono projects to help the needy in West Bengal.

WHAT: Current activities:

— Clothes distribution
— Study materials etc.
— Financial support to Pather Alo (পথের আলো), a free tutorial for students

Friends of Parabaas and our other sponsors will find the current status of the projects very heartening:
— More blanket distribution in winter (in Patharpratima area)
— Sharodiya clothes distribution (maintained at ~200+ level for past few years)
— About 120 students getting help (maintained this level since 2014, and up from ~60 in 2012-13)
— Increased support to Pather Alo
