Project Description

The Samaritan Help Mission, in Kolkata, is the only educational institution accessible in the citys semi-slums, and aside from its educational mission, serves as an important mentoring service for young people who might otherwise fall prey to the crime that dominates local life.

The Ann Foundation and the Samaritan Help Mission began working together when Mamoon Akhtar, the organizations director, approached founder Ann Moideen for help. Since then, the Ann Foundation has provided the Samaritan Help Mission with online English lessons and computer literacy classes. As a result, the school has seen vast improvements in the English literacy of several of its students.
