in the education system should be available even in the remotest and most backward parts of the state. This led us to expand our work even to the most educationally backward regions of the Purulia District of West Bengal.

During the training, they overcame their initial shyness to make efforts to speak and promised to use English in the Classrooms as well for Primary and secondary students.
