Child protection and education: Education: BTS-Patha Bhavan is the Working children’s education initiative of our organization. This was the first venture into development support in 1983 for the poor working children of Kultali which was later upgraded to the Upper Primary (High School) level.

Presently, there are 246 students in 9 classes from Preparatory to Class VII. Most of the students are from very poor family background. In addition to Joyful Learning, the students are given nutritional and healthcare support besides Vocational Outlook in absence of Learning –pressure.

We are also running a Children Resource Library and a Computer Literacy Center to support children’s education and technical capacities in this remote rural area. BTS also provides Books to Poor Students (BPS)

Child Care Centres:

BTS runs 5 nos. of Child Care Centers (Crèches) for 2-6 years age group children. BTS offers this crèche support basically to the infants of rural working mothers.

These centers, while taking care of the children in a homely atmosphere, offers nutritional food and immunization and other required medical support to the children free of charges. Experienced 10 governesses take care of the children. Currently, we have 150 infants under this programme.
