Nivedita Mukherjee Majumdar was born in Ghatal town of Paschim Medinipur District. Father is late Gopeshwar Mukherjee, mother is late Jayanta Mukherjee. While studying, she had to take care of the family and started working.
During 1993, Inspired by the ideals of Swami Pranabananda, Nivedita started her Social work in Ghatal. Her goal was to educate the children of marginalized people in the neighborhoods and slums adjacent to the Ghatal Court and bring them into the mainstream of society. She was transferred to Medinipur in 2002. And in 2003, she resumed the Social work she had been doing for a long time.
In these long seventeen years, more than a hundred children from Jharnadanga slum and Nivedita Palli in Midnapore have been able to complete primary, secondary, higher secondary and college level education with her initiative and help. She has been able to bring many child laborers back into the mainstream of education. In addition to education, she has inspired students of these two places in various cultural activities and is still doing so.
Presently she has taken responsibility for all the education of about fifty students. At the same time, she has formed ‘Matrimandal’ with their mothers, where he has been working tirelessly to spread education among them.
Her students are from children's class to post-graduate. She has appointed ten teachers for her students. The teacher has also been appointed for teaching other art mediums including dance, music, drawing etc. Most recently, her student Ravi Das, whose family once made a living through ‘Kirtan (a devotional song, typically about the life of Krishna)’, has now graduated in the first class and is currently studying B.Ed. (bachelor in education).
She is carrying out this great work without the help of any government or non-government organization. Mainly through his personal initiative and through the physical and financial help of some kind people. Alpana Bhattacharya, Ruby Das Barman, Chaitali Das Barman and Sabita Nag helped him in implementing this initiative at different times.
In the days to come, Nivedita's goal is to spread the light of education among the economically indigent, marginalized people of the entire city of Midnapore and make them financially self-sufficient.
