WHAT WE DO ?
Unlike the mission statement, the operating principles are periodically reviewed to ensure they remain up-to-date, relevant and accurate. We are committed to find the greatest injustices in the nearby surroundings of our home, city or village 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 anywhere nearby our place & rescue them from being exploited as soon as we are informed.
We pick up children especially those down trodden ones, such as we have a child with us, whose father has been mauled by a Royal Bengal Tiger in Sundarbans, a dense island in West Bengal. The children are inducted at the age of 5+ and will stay with us till they have completed their 12th Standard. We have guided them to improve their academic abilities and now they are studying in a reputed school "Netaji Subhash Pathbhavan" under W.B.B.S.E. curriculum. Our 15 senior children are now studying in Class-IV and our 15 junior children are studying in Jr. Kg, Sr Kg, & Class-I standard.
Apart from this, we also work on other charitable heads as below :FREE MEDICAL FACILTY :
More than 8000 poor villagers near our foundation campus are provided with Free Medicines & Free Medical checkup once a week, SINCE 2008.
FREE COACHING : From the beginning our foundation has been conducting free tuition classes for poor students from Class V to Class X. We are constantly supporting their studies with guidance and courage to continue their studies and improve their examination results. We provide free Tiffin for these students as they remain hungry after school. At present, we have an established non- formal education programme, where students receive tuition support from qualified and experienced teacher. All the students are performing well and we are getting excellent response from the community.
We believe in giving appropriate home sizes in order to create a family-like atmos phere. 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 30 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 AND TEACHER VIS-S-VIS CHILDREN RATIO FOR OUR ORPHAN HOUSE
|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 :

Thanks to our highly devoted & dedicated House Mother & Care Givers, who deliver their cent percent to help the children learn the lesson of being self dependence, cleanliness, sacrifice, loyalty & finishing homework in time too. The senior children are trained in various routine work on Sundays, such as gardening, dusting of individual book shelf, nail cutting & shoe polishing.
Every last date of the month is a common birthday celebration for those who have their birthdays in the following month. We organize various events of Annual Function & Sports meet to encourage the children meet the level of competency in extracurricular activities too & also present them in public to show their progress & avail their right to establish in the common stream of the society.
HOW WE WILL WORK TOMORROW ?
A loved, educated and happy child in TBEF has a real chance to succeed!
We plan our exploration agenda well in advance. We are ready with our plan of action for the upcoming years ahead.Now as the time goes we are just into the completion of the second Mother House (to be named as ‘SHANTI BHAVAN’) & so on slowly & gradually another process of building four more such Houses each of which will accommodate 45 children adding 450 children to our family, follows thereon.
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.
To make TBEF strong enough in it’s endeavors, it has now become necessary to be self sustaining too. Our prime focus is now to build a boarding Sr. Secondary School with One Lac Sq. Ft. space & a hostel for children of poor widowed mothers and orphans belonging to the under privileged section of the society.
