ESO KICHU KORI (EKK) (www.ekk.org.in) continues
to make real tangible difference in the lives of talented but
financially challenged students in Bengal wishing to pursue higher
studies. The non-profit organization focuses on providing higher
education to academically brilliant students coming from very low-income
families. EKK are different from other organizations that focus on
enhancing literacy and primary education in the sense they exist to
advocate a progressive change in society by creating an opportunity for
poor brilliant students to continue their education. EKK wants to help
such students utilize their full potential and prepare for careers that
would yield a high level of self-fulfillment and ultimately lead to an
overall development of society.
