New Life Centre School and Vocational Training Centre is in the small town of Sarberia near Kolkata in West Bengal, India.
500 disadvantaged children aged 4 to 16 from the surrounding rural area attend the school and about 10 young women are being trained in tailoring.
What is HATW involvement?
HATW became involved in 2006, with UK volunteers helping to construct some of the buildings, and has provided equipment and support to develop the work. Many of the children are supported through our Hand-in-Hand sponsorship scheme.
