                A welfare scheme entitled “NINGOL”- Girls’ Education Program was launched by Meingal, a Guwahati based socio-welfare society on 1st September, 2013 at East Gotanagar, at Sanatan Vidyamandir School near Phani Sharma Goal Park, Maligaon. The scheme was introduced with the aim to extend monthly financial aid at different rates from Class-I to X to girl students specifically who belong from financially weak background and from the Bishnupriya Manipuri community. Reshmita Sinha, aged 6 years reading in Class-II, the only daughter of a widow mother is the first girl student enrolled under this education program and she will avail the benefits of the scheme till she completes her class-Xth . The scheme was launched by Shri Jagatjyoti Sinha, spiritually devoted, social worker and senior citizen of the area. He expressed his hopefulness that this scheme will definitely help many deprived girl students who are unable to pursue their school education in the cities and towns due to high school fees and other cost of school items. He also urged people to come forward to make this noble cause success and increase the participation of more people in strengthening the functioning of the organisation.

School, Guwahati. Shri Bisheswar Sarma, a social worker and adviser of Meingal awarded the little talented chess player with the award. The award is introduced on the day with an aim to felicitate and give recognition to students, youths and women for their multi-disciplinary talents in various fields.
