January 10, 2018- The light of knowledge is more equally significant with health and livelihood in any rural society of India. Schools in rural areas are still struggling for infrastructures, facilities and proficient teachers.
Such is Pukarkata LP School (non-provincialised) of Lahorighat in Morigaon District which was established in 1982. But the 35 year infrastructure succumbed to unavailability of funds. There were no walls on all four sides. Only left was the bamboo poles, rusted roof, 4 pairs of desk and benches and one blackboard. The students cannot resist the winds, rains, the scorching sun and consequently school sessions became irregular.
Priyobondhu, with the help of London based NRIs, who funded the project decided to reconstruct the school building providing all school supplies. From 16-12-2017 construction work begun with a plan of 2 rooms, Concrete floor and side walls (Half), corrugated roof top, Desks, Benches, Blackboards etc. The construction work was completed on 9-1-2018 and inaugurated on 10-1-2018 by Shri Hemen Das, Deputy Commissioner, Morigaon; Shri. Swapnaneel Deka, Superintendent of Police, Morigaon; Smt. Dyotiva Bora, Circle Officer, Morigaon and Shri. Akbar Ali, Officer in Charge, Bhuragaon, Morigaon It was a new dawn for Pukarkata LP School. New sessions started with a batch of 40 students.
