Asha-Yale has been supporting the Mukti Coaching Centers since their inception. Asha-Yale currently supports the salaries for tutors at these coaching centers.
Mukti is employing local teachers to serve as tutors for children who attend local schools. The coaching centers have a good student to teacher ratio than the local schools, and therefore allow more individual interaction between student and teacher. The teachers themselves will be trained by experienced teachers from Calcutta and surrounding areas.It is hoped that these tution centers will result in better academic performance in the local schools. A smaller scale, but important goal, is to train and employ local educated youth.
Charitable and socio-economic development trust MUKTI was established in 2003 from the vision of a Sunderban native Sankar Halder. Sankar grew up in an underprivileged family
in the Sunderban and went through the trials and tribulations that people living in Sunderbans suffer through. Sankar decided to involve educated and energetic local youth to develop themselves and their communities through various developmental projects. This vision led to
the foundation of MUKTI.

MUKTI is registered under the Government of India Trust Act Section 64. It has an executive board who frame the policies and action items and pass down the action items to the ground level working committee. There are several different wings of the ground level working committee and every wing has several general members to implement the policies and work items of the board on the ground. A general body meeting is to be held every year. The executive board is elected for a two-year term, and will be dissolved and newly elected by and from the members by an electoral process.

MUKTIĆ¢'s mission is to implement programs for upliftment of the underprivileged, illiterate, poor and backward people of mainly the Sunderban region by way of motivation and human resources development thus building a self-reliant society by efficient and effective utilization of local resources and implementation of environmentally sound policies.

MUKTI's members are spread all over India and even outside India including the USA but MUKTI has an especially strong presence in the Sunderban area. We have more than 200
locals in the organization who are working for the sole development of the Sunderban region. Our working members are divided in to four wings: health, education, economic and cultural. All interested people with a vision of help and with a broad vision to work for the underprivileged are welcome to the group.
