Unlike the mission statement, the operating principles are periodically reviewed to ensure they remain up-to-date, relevant and accurate. Over a period of time, it has evolved multidimensional fields of education, health, and community development, and with a special focus on underprivileged children.

We are committed to find the greatest injustices in the nearby surroundings, village or city and work towards bringing relief to those living under its oppression – especially orphans, street children, and the single parent children. We keep track of such misfortune children from anywhere and rescue them from being exploited. We pick up children at the age of 5+ and will stay with us, in our homes, till they attain the age of 18 years and have completed their 12th Standard.

We have already started a school under C.B.S.E. curriculum in the name of South Calcutta Public School (SCPS), where the children of the surrounding villages belonging to the under privilege section of the society can also avail quality education in English medium with a nominal fee. The junior batch children of our orphanage also study in this school for free.

From the beginning we have always assisted the local communities with several social activities and welfares as and when required.

We have served the elders with weekly free food program. We have conducted free adult education to poor villagers. We set up free coaching (educational guidance) and free music classes for the impecunious students of the surrounding villages.

Apart from this, we also work on other welfares as below :

Since 2010, TBEF has set up a weekly free medical check-up centre with a MBBS Doctor, trained nurse and free medicines. Most of the beneficiaries are senior citizens and little children. Around 120 patients are benefited every month.
At present, due to pandemic situation, the weekly free medical facility is going on maintaining all guidelines by the Govt. of West Bengal including thermal screening of the patients before entry.

During the year 2020, we all have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic which led to a dramatic loss of human life worldwide and has also demonstrated that no one is safe until everyone is safe. Simple measures, such as maintaining physical distance, washing hands frequently and wearing a mask are essential to fight against COVID-19 can lead us to win the situation. But the most important is to make the community aware to follow these measures.
During this crisis situation we came forward and distributed masks, sanitizers, and dry foods for distribution to those, who are really in need and we also distributed some Oximeters. We educated them with the importance of social distance and wearing mask, usefulness and proper uses of the sanitizers and Oximeter, and how they can get appropriate treatment on time by knowing their oxygen levels.

DISASTER MANAGEMENT : A Natural disaster is an unforeseen occurrence of an event that causes harm to our society. A natural calamity is considered as a disaster when it affects the people or the property on a large scale. We cannot control these disasters and even if we take precautions, the damages they create can never be recovered.

Officials in India evacuated thousands of residents from coastal areas ahead of Cyclone Aila. Among the other areas of West Bengal, an estimated 400,000 people were marooned by flooding in Sundarban region.

We believe in giving appropriate home sizes in order to create a family-like atmosphere. This allows the house mother & caregivers to give personal attention to each child, to make sure that all needs are met, and each child feel special.

Our each mother house is a 3-Storeyed building.Each floor accommodates 15 children.At present we are maintaining 28 children.These children are being taken care of by one Mother and four Care Givers.We provide relevant space to each child in classroom, bedroom & playground to enable him or her to grow open & broad with enough confidence & dedication.

Special attention is given towards the Child handling & caring part too.We maintain a calculated ratio of Mother & Teacher versus child to ensure that they are attend with equal importance together, as shown in the table below :


Mother/ caregiver Class Teacher Painting Teacher Music Teacher Residential space allocation per child Class room space allocation per child Playground space allocation per child No. of Floors in the Orphan House
15:3 15:1 15:1 15:1 175 sq.ft. 150 sq.ft 135 sq.m. 3

All Govt. rules and regulations are followed & maintained with regular reviews by the Project Incharge & TRUSTEE Board. Regular visits are conducted by the concerned Govt. officials too. We submit the details of the children to the local Government bodies and Police Stations and keep updating the same from time to time.

The children are taught in a extremely homely atmosphere, so as to make them feel secured & affectionate towards the other fellow member sharing the facility together. They are being bought up in a disciplined schedule everyday from morning 5:45 A.M. till 9:30 P.M. at night in the weekdays, correspondingly as mentioned below :

Every Mother House will have three floors. Each floor will accommodate 15 children.These children will be taken care of by one Mother and two Care Givers.The children will stay in their respective Mother houses till they are promoted to Class VII.After Class VII when they are self sufficient and are able to take care of themselves, they will be shifted to our free residential hostel where they will continue to stay till they complete their 12th standard. We will also provide vocational training to the academically weaker children.The training will be imparted at our residential workshop so that they are well equipped when they leave our facility.Each child will attend our in-campus school from their respective Mother houses.
