This project is situated at Lalpur, Bodra village near Kendpur which is about 35 Km. from Malda town. This project was started in 1982 with  donation of land measuring 2.00 Bighas Bastu Land and 14.00 Bighas agricultural land from Smt. Karna Mani Sardar w/ o Late Mukul Chandra  Sardar in Malda district. A two storied kutcha building alongwith single storied building consisting 9 rooms was constructed to run 6 classes, office and hostel for the project. One Shiv Mandir was also constructed where people gather for worship regularly. This project is situated in a  very poor area.
