The Indian Society for Sponsorship and Adoption started Nava Jyoti Nilgunj free Creche and Coaching Class for the children of working mother of the locality at Vill- Selarhat, P.O. Nilgunj, P.S. Duttapukur, North 24 Parganas in July, 1993. It was a rented house with one room, one verandah and stair to go to the roof. We had 30 children and operated from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. ISSA provided breakfast, lunch and afternoon tiffin for the children and staff of Nava Jyoti Creche. Children were taken care by two creche mother and a co-ordinator. When the first batch left the creche to join school, coaching classes were started. They were taught by a teacher in a group class and were given a light tiffin. The creche children had a dance teacher and the children also had medical facilities where they were checked by a local paediatrician.
This centre was extremely popular in the locality and there was a waiting list of children wanting to join the creche. We increased the space by building another floor and we soon accommodated 2 units. Children were admitted into the free creche after a careful survey in the locality.
Initially the project was sponsored by Adoptions Forum, Norway. However, currently an older adoptee, Ms. Maria Mithoo Figenschow, adopted from us to Norway has raised money and sponsors the project currently.Success Story of the children who were sponsored by The Indian Society for Sponsorship and Adoption.
