Kolkata, 4th May :
Taking education to sex workers and prisoners in jail in West Bengal, the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) has decided to waive fees for them.

“To start with, IGNOU has decided to select the red light district of Sonagachi here from where 26 sex workers are likely to join courses on healthcare and food and nutrition programmes,” IGNOU Vice-Chancellor V N Rajsekharan Pillai said here.

He said that the Kolkata Regional Centre would focus on entrepreneurship development and vocational programmes to help sex workers and their children gain economic independence.

IGNOU runs a study centre to educate sex workers and their children.

It was also providing certificate course to prisoners at the Alipore central jail.
