West Bengal - Activities

ACF works in Sankrail and Farakka districts of West Bengal. Since the region has high rainfall density and most of the farmers are involved in growing paddy, we are working in promoting SRI- System of Rice Intensification programme which helps in increasing the produce and reducing production investments. Farmers are also given training in pest management, fish culture as an alternate system of livelihood.

We also run a Skill and Entrepreneurship Development Institute (SEDI) in Sankrail and Farakka. The SEDIs here offer numerous short term and long term courses. The SEDI at Sankrail has been recognised as a VTP by the Regional Director of Education and Training, Kolkata. To know more about skills training, please read our section on SEDI.

Numerous awareness sessions are also organised to promote health and hygiene in the villages. Health camps are organised in the villages according to the needs and requirements of the people. Farakka extensively supports the Pulse Polio Eradication programme. HIV & AIDS prevention programme is conducted among the high risk groups like truckers and migrant workers in collaboration with WBSAP & CS.

We have also established non formal education (NFE) centres to mainstream children in education who have either dropped out or are not going to regular schools. The curriculum in these centres is designed to be interactive and fun filled. Apart from the direct intervention with the children, we also support schools in infrastructure wherever required.

We also support women in SHG groups is their savings in both the locations. Women in Sankrail are also trying different entrepreneurial activities time and again as an alternate source of income. For more information on our work in West Bengal, please refer to the attachment.
