Missionaries of the Word
Brother Xavier started working with children from less privileged families in 1997. He established Missionaries of the word, an NGO, and shifted the two schools (few hundred children): New Hope [for girls] and New Life [for boys], to Ramchandrapur, 24 South Parganas. The Missionaries of the word continues to do very well under able leadership of Brother Xavier.
Calcutta Foundation has helped children in this establishment by sending music teachers [from the erstwhile Calcutta Foundation Orchestra] to give them free training in string music and vocal Indian classical music.
Calcutta Foundation provided funds for construction of a computer room and computers.
The Foundation has also been instrumental in acquiring vast quantities of wheat, rice and lentils for Missionaries, courtesy Fort William, whenever possible.
