Sanchayan Chakma is not an artist...
He wrote about himself: "... In your mail you wanted to know about me & what I do? Well, I’m nothing & not famous unlike you. I know you are a famous Artist. Infact; I ‘m the in -charge of BODHICARIYA PROJECT.
Bodhicariya School Calcutta India - workshop by Claire Guilloton
This project is run by SHISHU KORUNA SANGHA (SKS) (A children welfare society). Well, Let me write a couple of lines about our Project.
“ Children are the future architect of the society. The progress and prosperity of a child depend on how the succeeding generations are nourished. A child can not be
worthy citizen of the society, unless he or she educated well. The seeds of love, human values and patriotism may be imparted on the children only through proper
education. For this cause- to help the future generations grow SKS was founded. SKS is a children welfare society, which was formed on 30th October 1986 by some
renowned engaged Buddhist monks and social workers in Calcutta.Helping the children and the youth community, irrespective of race and religion, caste and creed, is
one of the objectives of SKS.But, to state precisely, the sangha is primarily committed to educate the children who remain uncared for bereft of opportunities for
education, particularly in the TRIBAL FAMILITIES who have been neglected and therefore, backward in all aspect of life”.
With a view to implement the principal aims & Objects of SKS, an ambitious project in the name of BODHICARIYA PROJECT has been established. This is a multifarious project with a
number of units, which are as follows:
1.Bodhicariya English Medium School
3.Health Care Centre
4.Centre for the study and development of Traditional Tribal Crafts and Arts
5.Centre for Buddhist Studies & preservation of Tribal Cultural Heritage.
But still we cannot fulfil all our dreams!!
