School Teaches Life Lessons to Differently-Abled Children

Benajira Abasik Pratibandhi Vidhyalaya, a school in West Bengal's Bankura district, is an inspiration for the differently-abled children from nearby villagers. The school works for a social cause where the students are encouraged to take on life confidently; and at the same time it also fosters communal harmony among the villagers.

"Started in 2010, the school is run by the joint efforts of local villagers and the teachers who contribute for everything from the students' meal to their notebooks," said Ajay Namata, a teacher at the school. Irrespective of their physical and mental challenges, the children bond with each other, share their meals and dream about a bright future.


A student, Sukubuddin Dalal, said, "We Hindus and Muslims both study here as brothers and sisters and then we go back to our places on time." The teaching staff at the school also includes differently-abled members who inspire children to lead a respectable life. "I am handicapped and I want the word 'handicapped' not to weaken one's aspiration. We are here to teach them so that they can make their future bright and should not feel alienated because of our impairment. They should not be demoralized," said a teacher, Sampa Barui.

Presently, the school runs classes till Class 6 and has a total of 157 students. But the teachers are confident that they would be able to expand the institution in the near future and raise the standard of education given to the differently-abled students.
