Each trip we make to Kolkata includes an excursion out to Khanjanpur outside of Santiniketan, West Bengal. We visit Kirsty and Rahul Bose who set up Suchana school as a resource for local Santali, Kora and Bengali children. Although the village children are educated in government schools they are taught in Bengali. This a second language for the tribal children as the Santali and Kora tribes traditionally have their own spoken but not written language. Being taught in another language sets the children at a disadvantage to learning which affects them gaining much needed local employment. We spoke to Kirsty and asked her to tell us more about Suchana.
