It was year 2003. Medinipur got divided in two parts just a year back. Undivided Medinipur was globally recognised for the brilliant minds,who gave birth to Pandit Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar, Scientist Mani Bhowmik, revolutionary Khudiram Bose, poet & writer Suryakant Tripathi, sculptor Chintamoni Kar and many more. Medinipur also houses world’s premium Institute like Indian Institute of Technology that nurtures country’s best brain and minds. Like a lamp has shadow along with the lights, Medinipur also had a socially, economically, educationally down trodden area for long which was not much discussed about.
But, some people here, witnessed the same, felt the pain and dreamt of removing the darkness from this under priviledged community who were deprived of basic needs of life and enlighten their lives. Igniting the light in people’s life can only be possible with education. Hence, was established Gopsai Avinandan Sangha with a noble aim of accelerating primarily the life of under priviledged area of the district and several other parts of state as well.
With that aim, Gopsai Avinandan Sangha initiated building a job oriented educational institution in Chandrakona Town which would educate the local people and also arrange the job that would change their economic condition. A vacant non-agricultural Dahiland was earmarked, procured after completing all legal formalities and basic survey work So, the journey began. Journey of making the dream true, journey of struggle.To make the best construction, best engineers and work force were hired from city. But sanctioning of total plan, construction, making infrastructure, providing facilities of an TEI demanded more than the budgeted amount and first obstacle faced of deficit of fund. It was a mammoth task, took lot many sleepless nights but as dream can’t be stopped, Gopsai Avinandan Sangha had to overcome the hindrances. But it was really distressing and agonising to face the impediments created by some local residents, for whom all these struggles were all about. Now we feel that it was indeed a blessing in disguise because that made us start creating the Awareness program …. Awareness for a better life, Awareness for the need of higher education, need of job centric course for youths. Also, we started literacy program amongst their predecessors. Thus, with two years of constant hard work & dedication, passion & patience, toil & moil, the dream came true in 2005 in the form of Gopsai Avinandan Sangha PTTI, the first self-financed primary teachers’ training institute.
The journey of introducing job-oriented education, creating future teachers, zeal of delivering the society a better tomorrow continues. It was felt that the locality and the district lack technically sound workforce whereas it was a demand of the society. To comply with that, Institute of Science and Technology was established in the year 2005 with an aim to impart technical education in form of Engineering and Management. Also, after Primary Teachers’ training it was necessary to introduce Degree course in Teachers’ education. So was established Bengal College of Teacher Education in 2007 with B.Ed and later in 2018 it started M.Ed degree as well. The effort of years started showing its results; students started coming from various parts of the district, state and neighbouring states. Scarcity of seats in GAS PTTI and enthusiasm of students has encouraged us to open up another Institution for Primary Teachers’’ Training in the year 2012 named as College for Teacher Education. Similarly B.Ed college was in demand of students and that led us to start our journey beyond Chandrakona Town. Considering the ease of communication, transportation and students’ eagerness to pursue B.Ed course, GopsaiAvinandan Sangha established two B.Ed colleges in Bhadutala and Chhoto Dabcha named Anindita College for Teacher Education & Excellent College for Teacher Education respectively. In the same year another B.Ed college, College for Teacher Education was founded in the campus that nestled other institutions as well.
Meanwhile, another horizon of job-oriented education was seen. India has been experiencing shortage of HealthCare professionals and pharmacists. Healthcare delivery system has been undergoing rapid changes creating immense demand for healthcare-oriented people and thus provides great career opportunities.So that was the area which could provide immediate scope of job after the education. Thus, to extend the continuous service towards mankind,P G Institute of Medical Sciences was established in the year 2017 with Pharmacy and then it added Paramedicalin 2020. Job oriented education in healthcare sector cannot be completed without Nursing education. Moreover, this stream creates scope of job and serves humanity at the same time. So, how could we not explore creating these noble professionals. Anindita Institution of Nursing has been established in the year 2021 to impart nursing education and make the students ready for job immediately after completion of the course.
This is needless to say that this hard work of Gopsai Avinandan Sangha for years not only have offered job oriented education or created awareness program amongst local backward population, specially in tribals, but there are other several contributions which have been enriching societysomeway or other. Let us see some of the aspects as below:
