Mayer Kol (Mother’s Lap)

On Monday, 24 April 2023, Overman Foundation launched ‘Mayer Kol’ (meaning Mother’s Lap in Bengali), a free, non-formal school at Jadavganj in West Bengal to render education to the tribal children of the area. These children hail from underprivileged families and are first-generation learners. They are also provided with free books, bags and meals.

Respected Anurag Banerjee,

Thank you for sharing the remarkable work of the Overman Foundation. We appreciate your heartfelt commitment to helping the needy and underprivileged. It is inspiring to learn about the support you are providing to cancer patients and other needy people. 

We appreciate your endeavor in establishing the free school, “Mayer Kol” (Mother’s Lap), in Jadavganj, West Bengal. It is really a wonderful initiative. It is said by Swami Vivekananda – “The gift of knowledge is a far higher gift than that of food and clothes; it is even higher than giving life to a man, because the real life of man consists of knowledge. Ignorance is death, knowledge is life. Life is of very little value, if it is a life in the dark, groping through ignorance and misery. ” 

By offering free education, books, bags, and meals to tribal children from underprivileged families, you are not only putting Swamiji’s words into practice but also making a significant difference in their lives as first-generation learners.

We extend our heartfelt blessings and support to the Overman Foundation’s noble cause. May your efforts continue to serve the Divine in these children, bringing them hope, knowledge, and a brighter future. Your dedication is truly praiseworthy, and we wish you success in all your endeavors.

Thanking you,

With best wishes and prayers,
