Mukti has served around 20,000 students in the past 12 years and committed to reach out more number of needy students through Mukti’s Book Bank project.The objective of Mukti’s book bank program is to spread awareness about the importance of education, primarily in the remote areas of Sundarban in West Bengal. Most of the families residing here are dependent on agriculture and fishing for their livelihood. Poor financial condition has compelled these families keeping their children away from basic or higher education. Even though some of the families send their children for primary education, they eventually drop out as the cost of text books and other necessary things increases as they progress to higher class. In 2003, Mukti launched this program to address this issue and encourage more students to pursue their dream of higher education. ASHA FOR EDUCATION, New York extended support to Mukti for implementing the Book Bank project successfully in 22 schools in Sunderban area in the year 2015-2016.
