Utkarsh Educational Initiative

Ambuja Neotia flagged off the Utkarsh Educational Initiative in January 2013 which is a scholarship-cum-mentoring programme targeting the girl child. 35 meritorious students coming from disadvantaged backgrounds are being supported to pursue higher studies and fulfill their dreams. It is in sync with PM's ambitious programme, "Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao". Support is extended to aspiring students in the form of scholarships, monthly motivational classes cum mentoring sessions, counseling, academic guidance, English tutorials, health awareness, educational tours, library, career guidance & other services.

Supporting Madhyamik appearing students from economically weak families

Vivekananda Sewabrata Samity, our NGO partner for Rajarhat location, organizes full-day workshops every quarter for students appearing for Madhyamik exams to make them exam-ready. It has been observed that students face difficulties such as, proper way of attempting questions, time management etc. Also they are less aware of the different tricks to score more marks. To overcome these, we hold the workshops to deliver guidance on various subjects. One comprehensive evaluation is held after every workshop coveringall subjects. The teachers in-charge of the workshops, come from prestigious schools and are registered examiners of W.B.B.S.E.

Weekly English classes for students from bengali medium schools

30 girl students from the surrounding locations of The Ffort Raichak have been inducted for special classes in English. Through this initiative, thorough English guidance for them - grammatical, written & spoken is provided for a stronger base in English. Students range from VIII to first year in college. We are fortunate to have KE Carmel School, Sarisha as our technical & infrastructural partner.

Ambuja Neotia Children Activity Centre

We have introduced an evening schooling activity at Sardarpara, Chandpur in Rajarhat, targeting 50 slum dwelling children. It is an everyday schooling from 5 pm giving lessons on good conduct, morality along with their academics - making the learning process joyful and interesting for the children. At the end of everyday learning, the children return home with books in one hand, and tiffin in the other.

Support to 6 primary schools in & around Raichak

The CSR Department is closely associated with the School Committees of 6 Govt. primary schools near The Ffort Raichak. Extensive support is extended in the form of TLMs, art materials, wooden furniture, cooking shade, cooking utensils, sports materials, educational paintings in classroom walls, cultural classes for children, distribution of fruit saplings et al. The most visible intervention accomplished in 4 of the schools is providing high and low benches for the students, prior to which they used to sit on the floor & take lessons.

Targeted Math intervention for 30 rural children

The quantitative aptitude of the children in the villages we work, were found to be abysmally poor. We conducted few games based on mathematical calculations for the high school students, however, all the prizes remained undistributed as none of the students could win any.

This gave rise to our new targeted community intervention: special Math classes for a selected few, particularly those who will be facing their first board exams in 2019. We started with students who were presently in the VIIIth standard, thus ‘catching them young’ and grooming them with calculative techniques and logical abilities so that they pass with flying colours in the board exams. We are hopeful our efforts will empower the students and boost their confidence in the right direction.

Cultural classes for children & adolescents

We cater to 75 children & adolescents in villages like Chakloknath, Kankjole, Raichak, Kalicharanpur and Singhalgunge surrounding The Ffort Raichak and have weekly classes for them on traditional Indian music and physical education. Separate classes are held for children and adolescents on creative dance with Tagore and Nazrul songs, yoga, Bratachari & other physical drills.

Suresh Neotia Fellowship (formerly Udayan Shalini Scholarship)

To bring higher education at the reach of all, especially the girl students, assistance in the means of scholarship is provided to 100 girl students. The initiative is being implemented by Udayan Care West Bengal, an established NGO. Ambuja Neotia is committed to support the students continuously for 3 years so as to let them complete their respective curriculums. The fellowship supports several needy girl students from in and around Kolkata from XI till post grad candidates. They are selected through an eligibility test called NAT (Need-Ambition-Talent). Ambuja Neotia is supporting this noble cause since 2007 and is also the chief partner of this noble endeavour, by supporting 100 students.

Jnana Pravaha

The Neotia family has also promoted a major cultural institute by the name of Jnana Pravaha at Varanasi where Smt. Bimla Poddar, is the Managing Trustee. She lives there to run the institute.

The Jnana Pravaha houses a very impressive art collection of Indian antiquity and also the library of Suresh Neotia comprising rare and priceless books on art and literature.
