1. The BRIGHT Scholarship Program

The ‘Bright Scholarship Program’, is an attempt to provide opportunities and support to those who are unable to afford or access the same, thereby enabling them to unleash their true potential, by obtaining a technical degree.

2.Installation of Arsenic Removal Water Filter in Rural Areas

The project of installing and distributing water filters was started in 2011 and is still ongoing.  This project was aimed at securing a clean environment by installing Arsenic Removal Filters to get rid of the toxic material from the drinking water to be consumed by the rural people in the Arsenic prone regions.
Installation of Arsenic Removal Filters for providing uncontaminated drinking water in the rural areas will not only reduce the health hazard made due to Arsenic contamination, but will also improve the quality of the life of the poor rural people of various places in South 24 Parganas of West Bengal, which has been declared as an Arsenic prone area by WHO.  Such water filters were distributed in around 500 schools.

3. Installation of modular toilet units in Govt. Girls’ Schools in West Bengal 

Keeping in view Government of India’s "Swachh Bharat" campaign launched in August 2014 we have framed a realistic unique Bio Toilet project which converts Human waste into Non toxic water through the application of Multi-strain Aerobic bacteria in our Bio-digester tank (EnbioletTM) for rural and  poor urban community for sustainable sanitation solution in India. The Technology to be used for the stated toilet has been technically supported by the Ministry of Science & Technology, Government of India.
These economical Bio-toilets do not need a septic tank, sewage line or sludge removal system and takes less space to set up. Usage capacity of single Pan Bio Digester Tank (ENBIOLETTM) is for 50 numbers of defecation in a day and 100 for twin. 



4.Collaboration with IIT Bombay to promote IT Literacy Program–A National Mission on Education through ICT (NMEICT), MHRD, Govt. of India

BRIGHT has been authorize in West Bengal  to spread the awareness and training  via Spoken Tutorial Project, IIT Bombay. BRIGHT is allowed to conduct the training  /workshops, hold events  and have meeting in Institutes on agendas related of Open Source Software Training of Spoken Tutorial Project. This comes under NMEICT, MHRD, Govt. Of India.


5.Free Medical Campaign for checking and counseling of patients

This project aims to cater to the people living in the remote zones, having no access to proper healthcare infrastructure and very poor transport facilities to reach the nearest medical centers/hospitals, which are actually quite far. People living in such villages, especially pregnant women, are worst victims as they are deprived of proper transportation facility. The scenario is so bad that even children do not get vaccinated.  People facing emergency health conditions often are victims of death due to lack of basic treatment within proper time.  Health check–up too is hardly a regular phenomenon due to remoteness of these.


6.Giving out books for WEST BENGAL JOINT ENTRANCE EXAMINATION for doing engineering 

Skills and knowledge are the driving forces of economic growth and social development for any country. The current capacity of the skill development programs is 3.1 million. India has set a target of skilling 500 million people by 2022. The field of engineering is in great demand since last many decades.Students in high schools require number of text books and notes to follow for learning apart from securing good marks which is very crucial for higher education in our present system. In rural and semi urban places most of the students come from economically challenged family who cannot afford to buy all text books and eventually left out of the school for their  poor result.The project of Distribution of Text books(WBJEE & JELET) to the underprivileged high school students is proved to be very effective to improve the overall position of the education in the underprivileged section of our society.Selected textbooks are distributed to the needy pupil who are already identified as belonged to the under privileged section. Distribution takes place through the school and list of the beneficiaries is authenticated from the school.   Meritorious but economically backward students both Boys & Girls who wish to pursue B.Tech course will be the direct beneficiaries since they cannot afford preparatory training required for the stated competitive exam.

7. Distribution of Woolen clothes to underprivileged  people in rural areas

Many families falling under the BPL category, specifically financially challenged people, find it extremely difficult to buy adequate clothing for all of its’ members. The aim of this project is to provide PHYSICAL & MENTAL PEACE to the villagers by giving them winter clothes and make them feel comfortable in the chilly winters.
