Babar Ali lived in the Bhapta neighbourhood of Gangapur village in West Bengal’s Murshidabad.

The village was known for its backwardness and people of direst poverty lived there. Though there were government schools in good number which offered free education to children in the village, their parents could not afford to send their children to school because they were so poor that they did not have money to buy books, uniforms and other essential things. Instead of going to school, most of the boys in the village helped out their families by working as mechanics, day labourers, grass cutters, livestock herders etc., and the girls worked as maidservants in the village.

However, Babar Ali, being the son of a jute seller, was better off than others. He went to school and got a formal education. He wanted to bring about a transformation in the lives of the poor and the underprivileged children who worked during the day instead of going to school. Therefore Babar Ali took the initiative of opening his own school so that he could educate them.
