In spite of the presence of a High School at Somsar, the spread of education is very much muted. More than 15,000 people live at Somsar and villages around and the lone school to cater to their needs is even less than insignificant. The long distance a child has to commute to attend the school causes widespread drop-outs. The standard of instructions leaves scope for improvement.

In this background, TWO non-formal schools on charitable basis are run by the Seva Mandir - one in the premises of the Seva Mandir with about 190 children and the other at a distant locality of 'Paschim Para' in the village with about 74 children.

The educational activity focusses on :
Pre-basic education: for children one to five years old.
Non-formal education: for elderly boys and girls who do not go to school or are mostly drop-outs.

Besides education by educated lady teachers under strict supervision by the Seva Mandir, students are introduced to various types of games, singing, dancing, Bratachari drills, etc. for overall development. While students of Somsar village attend these schools for taking tutions, students belonging to other schools come to Seva Mandir Schools come for tutions too. Every student gets tiffin apart from regular health check-up and free medical service with medicines. Text books and stationary, woolen garments for winter and school uniforms are provided to all students free of cost.

The educational programme is supported by "LIPILEKHA" a centre of Bengali learning in New York, USA, who give regular financial aid for improvement and enlargement of the services and activities.
