Birpara, 20th July: Save Birpara, a youth group based in Birpara, comes forward to help a financially weak but brilliant student from closed tea garden of Birpara. The Save Birpara group of Birpara has decided to bear all the expenses of studies of Nandini Chik Baraik, a brilliant student from the closed Birpara tea garden in Alipurduar district of West Bengal. On behalf of the organization, Kunal Biswas, Mukesh Chowdhury, Subrata Mandal, Ajay Pal Chowdhury, Vijay Pal Chowdhury and others went to Nandini’s house on Sunday and assured her to take all the responsibility of her educational expenses for the higher studies.
Nandini Chik Baraik, a student of St. Maria Gorethi Girls High School, got more than eighty percent marks in the Madhyamik examination and wanted to study higher secondary with Science stream. But her family’s financial incapability stood in the way of her studies. Nandini’s father Ranjit Chick Baraik is a tea garden worker and the only earning member in the family. But closed tea garden had made him unemployed causing worse financial crisis at home.
On behalf of the organization, Kunal Biswas said, “We’ll bear all of the educational expenses of Nandini, for Class XI and XII. If needed, we will stand by her for further higher education.”
Meanwhile, Pankaj Das, president of the management committee of Birpara High School, said, “If Nandini is admitted to Birpara High School, all cooperation will be provided, including waiving the admission fee.” Nandini’s family is happy that the youth of Birpara came forward to help them.
