In November, 1965, UNESCO declared September 8 to be celebrated as International Literacy Day. Since this proclamation, schools, communities and organizations have united around the world on this day to raise awareness and enable increased accessibility to education in developing nations. The aim is to highlight the importance of  literacy to individuals, communities and societies.


“It is indeed heartening to see the people behind Joyjeet Das Memorial School working so hard to provide education to the needy children. I was touched by their initiative and decided to contribute towards the welfare of the children of this institute”, said Subhasree Ganguly, who dedicates quality time in various social initiatives.


Ms Shimanti Das founded Joyjeet Das Memorial School in the loving memory of her soon Joyjeet, who at the age of 13, succumbed to cancer. Shimanti’s world plunged into darkness after the tragedy in 2002 but the memory of her son inspired her to move ahead and stand beside helpless and underprivileged children. Joyjeet had wanted her to look after poor children and that is what she vowed to work towards. With the help from a few others, Shimanti set aside her struggle for survival and chose to serve poor children in the city. She also started working for women’s empowerment and founded four schools in different parts of Kolkata. Joyjeet Das Memorial School was born on Joyjeet’s first death anniversary in 2003.

Shimanti also formed a trust called Schools of the World with the belief that every child deserves a chance. Today her project runs a kitchen for schoolchildren, a day care centre, a vocational training centre for the mothers and the first recreation club for underprivileged women.

Initiatives of this kind are therefore much helpful in imparting education!!

Abir Chatterjee Supports Amway India’s Initiative to Eradicate Child Malnutrition

Tollywood-Hero-Abir Chatterjee

According to World Health Organization, seven million children younger than five years of age die each year from preventable causes. Of these, malnutrition is the underlying cause of about forty five per cent of these deaths. India has a huge population of such malnourished and underfed children. About seventy five per cent of the preschool children in India are iron deficient and sixty per cent of them have Vitamin A deficiency. India is number one in the world for stunted children as per UNICEF. With a mission to help children lead better lives and achieve their potential, Amway unveiled a global campaign named “Raise your hand, fight global child malnutrition”. Under this initiative, Amway Opportunity Foundation (AOF) launched “Power of Five”, an advocacy program to build awareness on Child Malnutrition. This program was supported by Tollywood hero Abir Chatterjee.


Abir Chatterjee provided his colored handprint on eco-friendly paper to pledge his support to eradicate childhood malnutrition from India. Smt Krishna Gupta, President of Pathchala, the NGO working to eradicate child malnutrition, was also present. For every colorful handprint, Amway will donate US$1 summing up to a total of US $ 400,000 to CARE International towards the support of the underprivileged children. AOF also attempts to break the 30,000 handprints Guiness World Records also.


Speaking at the occasion, Abir Chattejee said “This is indeed a serious issue and with India topping this list, it becomes our duty to try and eradicate this problem. Whether the Guiness World Records will be broken or not, that is not the issue. The main idea is to collect a good sum and deposit it to CARE International so that children can be helped”.

The initiative by Amway is praise worthy and we hope that the company is able to collect a good sum of money to contribute to Care International.
