EDUCATION

Nandigram has a well-developed educational campus called Vikramsheela. Vikram means valour, whereas Sheela signifies virtue. That the children and youngsters may grow up into strong and healthy adults, both in body as in spirit, that they may be adventurous and brave, kind and considerate, with a deep sense of honesty and responsibility, is the key theme of all activities at Vikramsheela. Through Vikaramsheela and also by way of out-reach efforts in the interior villages of this tribal region, Nandigram undertakes various programs to ameliorate some of the shortcomings of the educational system prevalent in this area and its poor implementation. The programs are as follows:

* Full time summer camps for 5 to 12 years old.

* Environment awareness and nature appreciation picnic trips and children's visits to big towns & industries to let tribal children have glimpse of modern technological growth.

* Computer education training to village students in Basic, Tally Accounting, Web-designing, etc. at very nominal fees. A Government recognized short term computer course conducted at Vikramsheela has been very popular among students.

* Hostel for students living in far-flung areas thereby reducing commuting time.Students at the hostel are offered free loading and boarding.

* Scholarship and loans to students desirous of further higher studies, especially girl students.

* Free nutritional refreshment to children attending various activities at Vikramsheela involving considerable cost.
