Chandan Kumar Maiti

Headmaster, Chandan Kumar Maiti of Krishnachandrapur High School situated in the district of West Bengal, a district that tops the national list in child and human trafficking. This headmaster not only assists his students in every way he can but also helps save lives. Young, hapless girls are married off, to older men in Haryana, Punjab, Delhi and Jammu & Kashmir.

Maiti not only takes the girls under his wing to educate and shield them but also waives off and sometimes pays for their admissions and tuition fees. He stands up to the husband and in-laws of the district for his students and gets the appropriate authorities involved to get his students their justice. With tremendous risk to himself, and to the children involved, the dutiful headmaster goes beyond just books, to help students.
