12-year-old Nitai had no motivation to go to school, his daily wager parents also did not find any merit in studying. They were rather pushing him to do some menial work to support the family. It seemed the vicious circle of a daily wager's son becoming a labourer will never break, but Calcutta Society for Professional Action in Development (SPADE) came as an angel in Nitai's life. With their persistent efforts to counsel both Nitai and his parents to make them understand the value of education and creating a happy & enjoyable space at their education centre, now Nitai doesn't want to miss even a single class. Support SPADE to open modern technology-based knowledge hubs for kids like Nitai.
