Meet Ratri Mukherjee, a 1st year Masters of Social Work student from Chatna block, Bankura, West Bengal. Ratri is helping children in her village improve their learning levels by volunteering for ‘CAMaL ka Camp’ - Pratham’s summer campaign. Ratri heard of Pratham from a teacher and when someone from a neighbouring village told her about Pratham block team member Biplob Mukherjee, she searched for him on Facebook and connected with him. When the announcement for CAMaL ka Camp was made in Chatna, Ratri immediately wanted to join as a volunteer teacher. She also took it upon herself to help Pratham mobilise more volunteers. She is even monitoring the CAMaL ka Camps in as many as 30 neighbouring villages! In her own village, Shaldiha, Ratri teaches a very large summer class. Rakhi Chakraborty, a graduate in education, helps her to manage this class.
