Education Programme

Education – academic and vocational – for the underprivileged children is one of the principal objectives of TWIN.

Despite a major improvement in literacy rates during the 1990s, the number of children who are not in school remains high. Gender disparities in education persist: far more girls than boys fail to complete primary school.

The Function of Tollygunge Women in Need on Propagating Education

TWIN, by its Sponsorship Programme, gives to Children living in slums, Child workers and Children of sex workers, a chance to have primary education followed by secondary and higher education. By taking good care of them, guiding and helping them,

  • Crèche & Kindergarten for children up to 5 years - for grooming them for admission in schools.
