ANNUAL REPORT 21-22
The year under review 2021 – 2022 was the second year of Pandemic induced disruption. It was a year that showed the world that complacency regarding progress of the fight against poverty was premature. It proved how vulnerable the poor were in an upheaval that caused economic distress on a sweeping scale.
CSP has been working for 50 years among families that live below the poverty line in Kolkata. Starting as a Mother & Child Health programme and a Primary School, CSP’s core activities have widened to include access to Secondary Education and Income Generation Training. Shaping talent and encouraging cultural participation are essential in CSP’s approach to child development.
