Mithapukur is an under-privileged area where many indigenous people suffer from illiteracy, poor health and low-income. We have been partnering with them since 2011.

We're working to improve access to health clinics especially for pregnant and breastfeeding women so children can have the best start in life. We're also supporting parents to increase their income through new farming techniques and small business so they can continue to provide for their children. 

We have already achieved great things in Mithapukur community in building and supporting early childcare centres and improving the sanitation by building toilets. 
 

We’re working with the people of Mithapukur to build a community where children thrive.

We’ve been partnering with Mithapukur for seven years now and are starting to tackle the harder problems such as changing mindsets about the right to education for girls or early marriage. We’re focusing on building skills, hope and opportunity for Mithapukur community. 

After these projects are complete we ensure all our work is sustainable, and that the community is set up to identify and respond to needs as they arise. We plan for our partnership to continue until 2026 when we will have delivered a multitude of skills and knowledge for the community to continue their own development.
