„Internationalization of markets and Globalization can be only successful, if this also means chances and opportunities for those people, who are not able to participate actively in the process and influence the system.“
Ghosaldanga is a small tribal village near Santiniketan which Martin Kämpchen visits since the early 1980s. There he has started a model village development programme with an emphasis on education. Twelve years ago, the neighbouring village, Bishnubati, was included in these efforts. Kindergartens, coaching centres, agricultural projects, pisciculture, medical care, a weaving centre and a savings scheme are part of the project. Five years ago, a non-formal day school for Santal children was added. It has now five classes.
