Calcutta Connect supports the education of children and young people from some of the most marginalised communities in Calcutta and surrounding districts by working in partnership with local organisations. We are committed to helping older students from the latter stages of their secondary education and those who have progressed on to further studies by providing them with scholarships. The support we give directly benefits 1500 students in their education.
Founded in 2010 by past pupils of Coláiste Éanna CBS, a secondary school in South Dublin. Our committee is made up of previous participants in the school’s India Immersion Project. We are proud to operate a 100% model which means that 100% of all public donations we receive go directly towards the projects we support and any administrative expenses incurred are met by separate funding.
