We here at Niranjana Public Welfare Trust (NPWT) are excited to get back in touch with all our supporters and volunteers who have helped us over the years. This newsletter has been a long time coming and we hope to be able to bring you more in the future so we can keep you up to date with what we are doing.At NPWT we are continuing to work hard to break the cycle of poverty in Sujata and surrounding villages. Our mission on how to do this hasn’t changed

We are doing this by focusing on:

  • Offering free, quality education to all poor children from surrounding villages regardless of gender,religion or caste.
  • Taking in orphan children and giving them love, shelter, food, clothing, medical care and education.
  • Sustainably improving the quality of life of the most disadvantaged people in our greater local area by providing free medical care, health education and promoting the development of healthy villages through environmental improvement, organic farming methods and self sustaining initiatives.
  • Providing women with the chance to learn useful trade skills, thus allowing them to provide for themselves and their families. The latest on our projects

Niranjana Future Plan

Arrange sponsorship for the children wanting to attend Ghonghariya School.

Construct a new school building for Ghonghariya School that will cater for 200 children. This will allow us to bring a quality, full curriculum education program and facilities to these children and lead them on a path to a brighter future.
Construct Niranjana Health Centre and commence providing better health care to local people as well as those in more remote villages. This Centre will provide a range of services such as:

  • Hospital
  • Our aim is to have 20 beds for patients, with the required medical staff, medical supplies and equipment. Emergency Services – In the local villages there are no emergency services. The Trust wants to be able to provide an ambulance service to these remote communities.

  • Health Education
  • This will include education on important issues like family planning, taking care of children and child health, diseases that are prevalent in the area and their symptoms /causes/treatments, alcohol and the risks of excessive drinking and woman’s health issues.

  • Construct a new boys’ orphanage
  • that can accommodate around 20-30 more boys. There is a long waiting list of young boys who want the opportunity to come to the orphanage.

  • Acquire some land and construct our first girls’ orphanage that can accommodate around 20-30 girls.
  • NPWT as of yet does not have an orphanage for girls. This is something NPWT is hoping they can change in the near future. It will require significant funding to cover the cost of the land purchase and construction of the building. NPWT requires a larger parcel of land for the girls’ orphanage as they want to provide the girls with a safe playground space.

  • New Place for Volunteers to Stay – Sachi Home
  • Akiyo and Siddhartha have established a new Guest House for volunteers in Sujata Village called Sachi Home. Sachi Home has double and triple rooms with ensuites and dormitory rooms available. It is only 5 minutes walk to Niranjana Orphanage, Niranjana Public Welfare School, and NPWT Offices. It is set in a nice quiet location in the village on the opposite side of the river to busy Bodhgaya, but only 15 minutes walk from central Bodhgaya should you want to do some sightseeing. Sachi home is owned personally by Akiyo and Siddhartha not by NPWT.All volunteers and tourists are welcome so please spread the word!
