Talimi Haq School

Talimi Haq - means right to education in Urdu. But it also means learning is Truth, as being. Al-Haq is one of the names of Allah.

Started by Howrah Pilot Project on 1 June 1998, this is a non-formal learning centre for poor and working children in Priya Manna Basti, a 100 year old jute workers’ settlement on the Grand Trunk Road, in the Shibpur locality of Howrah.

Posted below is a letter I wrote to a friend in March 2005 about the school reunion.
