Kolkata Action Team
The team will live in the BMS guesthouse in central Kolkata. They will work predominantly with the Good News Children’s Education Mission (GNCEM), who run several mobile schools for street and slum dwelling children around Kolkata. This gives the children who would not normally go to school some basic education. The team will be asked to teach English, lead assemblies and play games. They will also work at Entally Girls’ Hostel, where you will get to know the girls living there, and at Freeset, which is an organisation that takes women out of Kolkata’s sex trade and gives them a job making bags and t-shirts.
