Project Description

The Antyodoy Anath Ashram is an orphanage established in a remote district of Purba Medinipur, in West Bengal. It provides food and shelter primarily to orphans, or to the children of single parents who have been deserted by their families.

The Ann Foundation began working with the Ashram in 2013, as a result of a collaboration between Ann Moideen and the orphanage’s founder, Balram Karan. English language classes began in January 2014, and the AF’s volunteers continue to teach the orphanage’s 75 students to this day with an aim of continuing the project into the indefinite future.
