Mission Statement


Education is the basic principle that will lead to prosperity for the Santal tribe. However First Light has much wider ideals. Education is the basic need for the children and the village, but so is good health. Therefore First Light will arrange a medical check for the children as often as possible. This is accompanied by a course for the parents about sanitation and health. Also HIV/AIDS will be included in a course for the village to make them acquainted with the medical possibilities.

Description


First Light has built a school in the village North Sehalli where the Santal tribe lives. Everyday the children learn the English language with the help of games and songs. When they have acquired the basics of the English language and are able to use it in their daily lives, their chances of finding a high-paid job are much higher. We are giving service to the Santhal tribal community.
