This year Niranjana Orphan Hostel welcomed five new young boys to their growing family.
Monu Kumar is 11 years old. His father died due to illness and his mother is a house wife who does some part time work at a small NGO. He has three brothers. Monu's mother wanted to give him a good education but they are a very poor family and she has had difficulty just providing him with enough food and clothing, let alone sending him to school. Monu’s home town is Jaridih, Bokaro, on the way to Kolkata, but he has been living with a relative in Bakrour village. Monu is in Class 4 at Niranjana Public Welfare School and has settled in well to life at the Niranjana Orphan Hostel. Monu loves reading and enjoys to study and when he grows up he dreams of being a pilot.
