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.

Attendance is by invitation only to the EKK Fund-Raising event featuring Anupam Roy live.
