Jamtara District is one of the most backward, rural districts in Jharkhand State in North Eastern India. The small town of Jamtara, 5 hours by road from Calcutta, is the District Headquarters. The Edwards English School (Est. 1995) in town was chosen as the location for this sabbatical project. The original intent was to complete healthcare needs analysis of the community, starting with the school children, and then assessing the feasibility of initiating quality healthcare services for this rural community. With the limited time of 4 months and no funding, it was clear that no healthcare delivery could be attempted during this project.
