Be Their Genie

What is this?

This is a wishlist, by the students studying at Disha Seema. Disha Seema is a residential school at IIT Kharagpur hosting 300+ students from underprivileged backgrounds in rural West Bengal, Jharkhand and Orissa. It was established in 1992 by Hansa Nundi, a 1964 alumnus of IIT Kharagpur and the first woman to graduate from the Electrical Engineering Department. The school has a library, an aquaguard, a television, a park made of tires among other facilities. The school is supported by donations from alumni and well-wishers but with the burgeoning number of students, they are always short of money, to the extent that most kids have never had milk or eggs.

How can I help?

This is a wishlist containing the things that they cannot afford. You can help us fulfill some of them. Some items in the wishlist such cricket bats or mosquito nets can be bought online and sent to their address.
