Happy Birthday Syamatara!

New Light set up a multi-functional shelter for the children of the Dalit community located behind the crematorium in Keoratala, Kolkata and till date the shelter offers all the services to the targeted community that were originally offered at the Kalighat shelter. It was with the aspiration of changing the lives of the young ones in that community through education, healthcare, nutritional support, recreational facility and HIV/AIDS care that New Light set up this shelter.

In April 2017 the centre got a grand face-lift and there stood a brand new, expanded shelter for the children at the Keoratala grounds and the then Dalit Centre was now known as New Light Syamatara. Today we celebrated the 14th birthday of New Light Syamatara.
